Doesn't Leica or some other brand make a stills only camera?
It's not Sony, it will never be Sony. They have always had video as a part of their camera division's DNA.

The Leica M series remains, I believe, stills only. However, it’s also manual focus only, and was designed for rangefinder focus - I think the M10 introduced focus peaking. I would guess that the focusing is why it does not include video.

I suspect that Sony introducing a stills-only camera that was manual focus would be, um, very brave.

I think our OP wants to keep all the shiny bells and whistles, but just lose video.
