Ok, Lets build a fictional FF K-1s together

Ok, Lets build a fictional FF K-1s together.
Everyone add JUST ONE feature that they would most like to see in a fictional K-1s.
Or add a drawing or image of the feature.
Make sure you don't add a feature that has already been listed. (try not to add conflicting features)
The longer this thread goes the more meditation on features will be needed.

Ok I'll start with:
Full Frame and__________

Features added by Pentax Forums FF development team:
Full Frame
Clean styling
Large Optical Viewfinder
6.66 MP per a square centimeter
K-3 styling
Size of a LX film camera (possibly mirrorless)
Mirrorless (not sure we can do that with optical viewfinder though, possible rangefinder)
50mm f1.4 metal kit lens
Shake Reduction
Styled by the same person who designed the Pentax Q
4K 60p
Expand ISO lower and higher
Dedicated DOF preview lever or button
Electronic shutter to sync up to 1/8000th.
Fast AF
Retro look, but not retro ergonomics
De-cripple K-mount. More friendly exposure mode with K- and M-series manual lenses.
Should come in the hands of a sexy Pentax lady, that just got caught in the rain and is soaking wet (even though the camera is fine, if you still happen to care) ?
Development kit, or an open platform to program my own filters, profiles, functions (Firmware editor)
Fuji-style hybrid VF. (but with a mirror/pentaprism setup instead of see-through).
Interchangeable viewfinder
Retain TTL and aHSS in addition to P-TTL
Optional battery grip.
Tilt LCD
Live "Zebras" in video mode.
Choice between 14-bit RAW and 12-bit RAW with a double sized buffer
Front and Rear E-Dials
9 frames per a second.
AF points more spread over the frame (all cross sensitive)
Left Handed version?

(I think we may be designing a Super Camera)

Clean styling. Boxy is fine, but no weird angles or anything funky. Full size too. Basically a D4 that says Pentax on it.

Mad lib camera? This could get interesting!

Okay, I demand an optical viewfinder. Just wanted to get that in before someone puts in an EVF.

6.66 MP per a cm in a full frame would equal how many MP??

Mirrorless! (But I might not be in the majority on this...)

EDIT: Hmmm, I see someone already asked for OVF... Rangefinder anyone? Alright, guess this fictional K-1 is (already) not for me...

We're going to need a good graphic artist or illustrator to put this visibly together for us.

In theory, no, assuming we're sicking with K-mount... but no one's mentioned that yet. They would have to get pretty clever with the electronics, though.

1/500th Max sync speed, and/or an electronic shutter to sync up to 1/8000th.

i imagine that the film plane is a bit thinner than the electronic sensor, so it *has* to be a bit thicker?
