How about being able to preview your last shot without waiting for a month. Why are more focus points better? I would like 1 focus point that hits its intended target. Also a built in flask for all the single malt scotch drinkers there apparently are.

For daylight photography the current Pentax lineup is pretty good. Add the K30 focus peaking to the K5, plus a few other inconsequential bells and whistles. My wish list is for astrophotography:

Tethering. Reduced noise (without losing detail) on ISO 1600 long exposures. A video crop mode that takes the central 640*480 pixels at 1:1 resolution. Removable IR filter. Built-in astrotracer. Intervalometer that allows shutter slower than 30 seconds.

Faster buffer clearance to prevent freezing camara after rapid burst of RAW
Better hi-iso performance
Especially better hi ISO performance. I can't think of any other single gear factor that would improve my photography more than this.
Just imagine, hypothetically, a camera that would give you the quality at ISO 12800 That you now get on the K5 at 1600 for instance.
If Pentax came out with a camera that was identical to my present K5 but with only the above improvement I would buy it.

Faster buffer clearance, would be number one. Nothing slows me down like that does.
