I'd be really happy if they came out with a MILC leaf shutter camera in the vein of the X-Pro/X100. Even adding a focal conversion above 50mm (preferably 70-135) for the X100_ would be amazing.
YES. Stealth is my second most favorite thing about the X100 - it pulls courtroom duty with me and it is pretty clutch. I'd seriously consider a Sony A7R-style MILC with leaf shutter lenses over the GFX or 645Z (two MF digitals I'm considering upgrading to once used prices drop a bit), especially if the MILC offered f/2 or faster glass.
