I'm confused, when did anyone say that they wanted the buttons removed in favour of purely touchscreen based controls?

Not sure it was explicitly stated...but I think some of us are worried that Canon is going to be insane and think that just because smartphones have gone completely touch that it'd be a good idea for DSLRs to do the same.

Personally I want a good quality portrait keyboard (ala Palm Treo style) on my phone, even if it has a good sized touch screen. But then, I guess I'm just an old curmudgeon that thinks that because I'm so efficient at it I should be able to find a phone like that in the marketplace somewhere.

Put 35mm sensor in this chassis ::)

Am I asking too much?

Thank you , Sir Dear Dyland777.
That will be my day, I will buy 3 of them.
Similar to my dear Canon Tank FT-QL  my first  Japanese Camera in 1955-56, which my dear Dad brought me from PX camp/ American  Air force Camp in Thailand / Vietnam war era. Yes, Before that I use my Daddy's Leica III f.
Thanks again dear Dylan777---You make my day.

Higher resolution LCD screens

If Canon were to produce an LCD with the same pixel pitch (326 ppi) as the iPhone 4-5S and the 3:2 aspect ratio it would have a resolution of -
3.0":  814 x 542 (1.32 million dot)
3.2":  868 x 579 (1.51 million dot)
3.5":  960 x 640 (1.84 million dot) - same size as iPhone 4/4S

If Canon were to produce an LCD with the same pixel pitch (441 ppi) as the Samsung Galaxy S4 and 3:2 AR it would be -
3.0":  1100 x 733 (2.42 million dot)
3.2":  1174 x 783 (2.76 million dot)
3.5":  1284 x 856 (3.30 million dot)

Better than the current 720 x 480 (1.04 million dot) displays (288 ppi @ 3", 270 ppi @ 3.2"), and could allow Canon to tout the highest resolution LCD on any DSLR (Samsung would still have the biggest, though, with the almost-unusably-large Galaxy series at 4.8").  Does anyone know what type of panel technology is used in current DSLR LCDs (TN, MVA, PVA, IPS, eIPS, etc)?

What are your thoughts?

Canon does not produce LCD's, they buy them from Sony. 
 
I'd like them to use a OLED display so it is bright enough to use outdoors.

Yes, the same Sony that makes the Xperia Z (5.0" LCD at 1080p - 443ppi). 

OLED would be a good option.  My dream is for someone to come up with a full color screen that is as easy to read in full sunlight as e-Ink but also has backlight for darker conditions.  Also, S-IPS color accuracy (100%+ sRGB spectrum), RGB LED backlight and 1000:1 contrast ratio.  I'm not asking for too much, am I?

.
This has a about zero influence on why I buy a camera.
+1 as long as it's not tiny or crap, I've been happy since the 2"+ screens came out.  As long as I can see the histogram in sunlight and enough detail in Live View when I manually focus, I'm good to go.

I'd buy a tiny, retro styled Canon mirrorless that looks like this in a heartbeat. But you've filed in the DSLR section!  ;)    You want "mirrorless," two doors down.

Where's the EOSM2? Lovely mockup!
