    I think they will go with a new sensor with an increase in MP as usual (the latter is not something that would interest me personally), 4K probably, silent shutter maybe... I would definately would like the writing times to the card and viewing to be improved too (so a faster processor?)

    What I would like to see but probably won't happen is a touchscreen, dual card slots, improved battery life (but with compatible batteries between the existing systems).

    Adding AF-C eye af would be welcomed, as well as improvements in AF overall (accuracy, low light, faster, more fps, more af points wider pdaf, and a separate joystick for selecting the focus point maybe).
    Definately better UI - menu - and an improvement in the EVF and screen is welcomed too :)

    Or at least a fully implemented version of UHS-I. Even the top of the line A7rII is a disaster of memory card speed:

    Lossless compression for raw files, these uncompressed files fill up my hard drive like there's no tomorrow. And enable playback while writing to the card, heck, my 2006 Nikon D200 could do that!

    Agree with the above posts. Sony needs to work on the I/O of its memory controller. Better buffer management too, it's slow to empty into the card, and making the write buffer available for more shots.

    I can't wait for the A7 III, so I can get another A7 II for cheap!

    Same here, hoping the price of the A7II comes down a bit so I can upgrade...

    I would like a body style like the Nex6/A6x00 series, I have oily skin :( and am forever wiping the screen. Dual card slots would be a big big bonus for me. I would on a facile level like the body in silver and don't want more weight.
