BTW there is one thing the camera industry should do but has not and that is allow direct use of lithium cells 2 x 18650's will do though shorter ones possibly. That's the only way you're going to get real endurance on battery life. Too much cash to make selling overpriced OEM cells using off the shelf batteries in a plastic case. It's a massive rip off of the highest order

Robustness is a factor these people abuse their gear quite a bit bodies and lenses a very rough life. I raise the flash area two reasons ie compatibility yes you can shove any flash on the MIS but it's not dedicated. The plastic shoe is also a problem I've no idea why they have not made a metal one.
LED's are fine I often use a torch for some shooting and I have a lot of them (I test torches for some makers) LED panels also pretty good for some tasks PJ's are not going to carry them around for that type of work so they rely on fill flash a lot.
I wouldn't replace my A mount stuff with an ILC body if I want small I take a smaller body. It's a shame the line-up is so limited there is room for a smaller body in there and something else too. I'd be really surprised if Sony make any big inroads into the market place at least for still shooters they might grab some mixed shooters who do video and stills. I'm wondering why they didn't make a larger body for this type of shooting integrated grip etc it makes more sense than the similar smaller E mount bodies. That's what shooters who do this want they don't really need small solid and tough lots of grip yes small no
