Ideas for a new camera

Now that Pentax has entered the mirrorless market and decided to keep the K mount, I have an idea that could be implemented in future bodies and be extremely useful. If the sensor can be shifted to enable shake reduction, why not enable it to move forward and backwards too? There is no longer a mirror to stop this movement. A camera with autofocus-sensor can be made, and best of all, AF would work with absolutely any lens. Opinions on this idea?

there was a discussion about this idea on on of the really early k-01 rumour threads. I think that the conclusion reached was that it would have to move quite a long way- further than the travel that could be accommodated by the body's size. i might be wrong.

another idea someone had was that the infrared or UV filters could be on a hinge so that they could be flipped down and used or flipped up out of the way for doing specialist types of photography.

loads of possibilities though i imagine. i would like them to put that space in the body where ethe mirror used to be for something. i imagine that the most likely one is have the lenses recess into the body to make the whole package nice and small.- otherwise it might as well just be a DSLR...

rear mount lens filters is a neat idea... but rather than worry about the space internally... the fact remains this is a chunky camera on the outside...
there is room for improvements with the next generation of this camera...
weather sealed....
live view hdmi out.. during video recording..
larger lcd (even an articulated one).
top plate lcd...
live and cold hotshoes for video lights/mics etc..
built in led video light...

there's room to add stuff....
