Last, but not least, I would to have an option to set up the camera from the computer using a decent setup program.

To stop releasing products I feel attracted in buying? ;)

Boy was I right... ;)

You certainly were.

It's like London buses, nothing for an hour and then four come along at once.

From Fuji: a small, sharp, weathersealed 16-70/85 lens with OIS. Main purpose is for hiking to take along with a X-T2 and not worry about occasional rain drops or heavy dew. A constant F4 would be nice but I'll take a 4-5.6 if size differential is big. Telephoto at 70 is fine if 85 would make it too big.
Right now I'm using the Oly E-M5ii with the 12-40 F2.8 as hiking in any weather camera but would prefer the Fuji. I'll have to check the E-M1ii with the 12-100 F4 to see if it's as huge as I think it is as 5-6 stops of stabilization are very appealing, I would probably leave the tripod and come up ahead with the weight.

PS. the newer Nikon 16-80 F2.8-4 is 480g so they should be able to make it at least as light

I want more high quality shift lenses. Something in the 30 to 35mm range. And updates for the Canon and Nikon 45mm-shift lenses. Maybe Zeiss could enter that market? Imagine a shift lens with the quality of the Otus lenses. Sharp even in the extreme corners when shifted?

We have seen so many really good f 1.4-lenses. And zooms. But except of the PC-E 19mm - no groundbreaking shift lens came in the last years.

As a Canon user, a 32-35mm TSE as well as updates on the 45 and 90 would be most welcome, perhaps add a 65 TSE as well. I find the 24-105 a bit slow, and the 24-70 a bit short. A 24-85 f2.8 would be perfect.

For Panasonic to have come out with a more photocentric M43 top rig for less than $2000 so that I could have stayed with the system instead of cashing it all in and going to Nikon FF.

Whoops.  Too late!

Yes, 35mm is a favorite focal length, a shift lens would be welcomed.

Since we shoot motion footage even on a still centric project, I'd love to see a few things, especially on the 1dxII. 

1.  A clip on EVF when going to motion with a hot shoe on top that will allow a pocket wizard or a shotgun mike.  The Olympus em series has this and it allows for 90 degree movement for a waist level shooting.

2. A 1dx style camera with a removeable right angle grip which allows for two different grips.  One for motion with low sound fans,
