I have somewhat modest dreams, I think. The camera that pops in to my sleeping head lately is as follows:
Rangefinder style with built in EVF. Fuji X-E1 style I suppose.
Articulating or flip high res LCD w/touch controls.
Fixed Lens. 24-105 zoom range. F/1.8 - f/2.8, or 2.8 fixed. (maybe 2.8 - 4 is more realistic).
m4/3s sensor, or APS-C, or even the 1" from Sony RX100.
Built in flash.
Good, quick AF in video.
Features like super slo mo video, in cam HDR and panorama.
This camera seems possible to me when I look at what Sony has done with RX100 in terms of size. If they can build that camera that small what can be done with a G1X sized body?
Basically I want Fuji or Oly JPEGs, Sony video and features, with fast normal zoom in front a 1" min sensor crammed in to a stylish package a la the Fuji X series or E-P3/GX1. The ultimate snapshot camera for the tech gear geek.
Is that possible? I suppose the glass:sensor relationship is the limiting factor.
Would you want such a camera? At what price?
