More outside the (mirrorless) box thinking...

It would not be difficult to have a mirrorless camera that can use lenses with built in shutters. Pentax has already done this in the past, of course, but the shutter speeds here would be controlled from the camera. It would be just a few lenses, not all of them. Using motor technology that's been developed for autofocus, I think speeds of 1/1000th or even 1/2000th would be attainable. If you could get flash sync at such a speed, there would be things you could do that wouldn't be possible otherwise.

They already have that- it is the Q7. 01, 02, 06 and 08 are all leaf shutter up to 1/2000, flash sync at 1/2000, plus a built-in ND filter!
