What about bringing it in MIRRORLESS? The focus area could be set ANYWHERE around the finder. With todays precision the accuracy shouldn't be a problem.
Huge selling point of EOS M?

virtualreality: For DPreview staff: perhaps it is interesting to discuss Minolta "Advanced Program Zoom" in the future. It was a feature where the camera would use an algoritm to determine the ideal composition and zoom accordingly. Also it would maintain the size of the subject in your image, as it moved towards or away from you. It required power zoom XI lenses and a "Sports" (expansion) chip card.

Pentax had something similar.

Dee Fitch: Chances are I'll never see the movie, period. These staged/battle/action scenes in war movies are so phony and monotonous, and they really grate on me. I guess your average Joe moviegoer laps it up so movie guys don't challenge themselves to make better. There are more interesting and creative ways to depict battle.

Because war is fun and always a very original thing.

Cameracist: Canon has DP AF, Nikon has more DR. I see market for both but it's a shame you can't get both in one body. Maybe going mirrorless with Sony is the answer, but A7RIII has it's own downsides, like price, battery life or no touchscreen :-(

Storing batteries charged hurts them.

This kind of things happens. The real problem is how will the manufacturer react. Leica reacted well.

elefteriadis alexandros: ''Dynamic range isn't everything, of course''. Sorry but it is Achilles' heel of digital sensors and the reason why digital is behind film even today.

I understand the *look* of grain.

I meant A7RII, one "I" too much :-D
Changing the batterie is inconvenient. Believe me, I have both Sony and Canon and while I like the Sony very much I hate changing the batteries all the time and remembering to bring them everywhere and keep them recharged.

The difference is to expose for shadows with (negative) film and for the highlights with digital (and raise shadows later).

Couscousdelight: For cheaper than a 6DII you can have a Pentax K-1, and it gives you :

36Mpxl
14Ev od dynamic
IBIS + pixel shift
35 cross Af points
A rugged body adapted for most situations.
And many more...

And lesser lens selection. Native or third party.

Digital sensors having 14-15 EV DR are not behind film, IMO.
And even if so, maybe behind some BW negatives.

There will be a conspiracy theory about it for sure.

Another reason for me: the Windows 10 is a great platform IMO. Never really used a Mac for a long time but I had some problems with both 7 and 8. 10 suits me best.

Ben O Connor: Leica... why no m43 camera why!!!!

It'd be rebranded Panasonic.

It's like having a hi-tech digital yoyo with a spin counter, wi-fi and music player.

Cameracist: If I want to take a portrait - I set the model, set the scene, focus the camera, set ISO, aperture and speed, put the camera on tripod and then ask an assistant to pres the remote shutter... the picture is magically his work and he can sue me? Just to be clear.

Shooting is a part time job for me and my wife is doing me an assistant. We don't have a contract. But now as you say that I do realise that maybe a mistake for the future...
