    I could get tempted by some weather sealed primes, a tilt/shift lens around 12-17mm in focal length, and especially by a camera with an infinite dynamic range sensor (last one very tongue in cheek, totally impossible, and totally desirable).

    Any camera that can have its menus, EVF displays, wheels and buttons programmed via a PC. That way I can get rid of menu items I never need, and group the stuff I do need in a single high-level menu. Nice to have: a really simple WiFi interface. Japan does great hardware and really poor software UIs.

    I'm even less ambitious that this. I just want to store some configurations on my PC or phone, then download them to the camera body for use as various (C, A, P, S, M) settings. This would mostly eliminate the "how did that get changed?" moments when the camera does something I didn't expect.

    Of course, a PC-based user interface that was less awkward and time-consuming than the LCD menu system would be nice, too.

    This kind of stuff is easily do-able and could even be an add-on product for the OEMs to sell.

    A 7mm, 8mm or 9mm Rectilinear autofocus lens. A maximum aperture of f3.5 or f4.0 would be fine to keep the price and size/weight down. The 7-14mm zoom is too bulky and expensive.

    The whole programmable camera thing is something Thom Hogan has complained about before, and frankly it's crazy that the camera industry hasn't done it yet. Come to think of it, I'm not sure any industry has done it... Cars, pvrs, whatever

    A 10-30mm f3.5. Ideally weather-sealed, but doesn't need to be. Can also be variable aperture (f2.8-4). It doesn't need to be nearly as small as the 9-18mm, I'd be just fine if it was up to about 400g and 12-40mm sized, though obviously smaller is better...

    That's the kind of lens I'd love to see in any system. I've really grown to appreciate the "moderate ultrawide" of my 11-22mm, but I find I'm more likely to run out of range on the long-end than the short end. 22mm is an almost perfect "normal" FL for M4/3, but 30mm would make it that little bit more versatile. And I expect that such a lens could still be made smaller than the 11-22, as ultrawides designed for DSLRs are all enormous due to the flange distance.

    28 or 35 fixed lens small camera with an evf, the ability to easily zone focus, and a setting where you choose shutter speed and aperture and the camera sets the exposure by adjusting ISO.

    Only one I'm aware of is universal remote controls. Check out Logitech.

    I'll piggy back on this one. I'd like a two camera set: 35 and 90mm, f1.8. Probably need to offer a 50 as well, to keep everyone happy. As small and simple as possible.

    I would like another Ultra Wide Angle lens choice. Zoom or Prime, I'm not fussed. The trouble we have with the 3 lenses that are out today is you either have one that takes filters, or one that hasn't got fringing and mushiness in the corners. You can't have both.

    I would be happy with a redesigned, 9-18mm Mark II, that had more sharpness and less fringing over more of the useable aperture range.

    I was going to write a reasonably small 12-50 2.8-4. But I liked the 10-30 from TurboFrog. So maybe a 10-35 + 35-120 around f4? Something like that.
    And a non-pro fast medium tele prime, like 105/135/150 2.8, maybe macro (or not, if helps to keep it smaller).

    About programmable cameras Olympus started doing something similar but the software only runs on an external device:

    What I would like is a native tilt/shift lens. No adapter. I don't know if autofocus is possible with tilt/shift but if it is I want that too. Basically, "I want it with everything" as the saying goes. This is a wish list thread and if I'm going to wish then I don't want to only go half way in what I wish for. I may have to compromise on my purchases but I don't have to compromise on my wishes. :)
