Default Dream Camera

I thought it would be fun being especially since this is the holiday to fun out if you could have your dream camera either one already out there or something out there but with changes or your own custom camera built from ground up under the tree this year what would it be.....

If I could design a camera from scratch I'd take the Cannon Mark IV I believe it is (the one all the guys were trying at the winter olympics) and instead of having add on lenses I'd have a 15x barrel type zoom (starting at 28mm) built into to the body that would be f/2.8-4 or better yet f2.8 all the way out. The lens would have dual image stabilization. It would use both SDHC and CF cards. Oh and under 3lbs with the f2.8

If I could change one thing about a camera that is already out there and get it under the tree I'd take the Fuji HS10 and add a better burst mode (7fps for 1 second doesn't cut it for me) I'd have the camera with 3fps for 15 seconds........

yup, Leica. I want that set up, but do not want to pay 150k for it.

well, if we're gonna play this game, i'd choose the Canon Mark IV with one lens that ranges from 12mm-500mm. 20fps shooting, and a battery life of 10,000 shots.

price tag: $300.

Hey, i can dream, right?

I'd like pretty much the same except I want one that fits in my shirt pocket. With a ISO high end of something like 4 Million, i.e., being able to take a picture with at most one photon.

oh cmon bill, lets be realistic here... ISO at 4 million? I dont think it would be very affective after 2.5 to 2.75 million.
