*  3.5" OLED screen with better visibility in sunlight

OLED screens are actually worse in sunlight as they can't have as much backlight as a traditional LCD screen. 

Are you sure about that???  The Galaxy s5 has an OLED display and it looks better than my iPhone.

Regardless of what technology Canon uses for the next generation screen, I would like it to be easier to view the photos on sunny days.

Thanks

I'll take one if X II native 52,000ISO = 12800ISO current X

Dylan77: What will this mean for the 5D4 in "native" ISO? In nightphotography tests, the 1Dx was recommended without hesitation for ISOs 8k to 12.8k, while the 5D3 was referred to as an ISO 5k cam due to its pixelcount. Can we expect about 3/4 to one stop improvement in high ISO in RAW with the 5D4? I hope Canon will remain with the +/- 22 MP. As I guess, that real improvement in high ISO IQ happens along with improved sensor tech and same MP count, otherwise we'd endup with an "evolutionary" new body only.

If Canon can implement these into X2:
1. All 61 AF points = double & dual cross
2. Slightly higher MP(20MP)
3. RAW, 25K ISO = 12K ISO current X
4. keep 12-14fps RAW
5. Add little more DR to the "NEW" rumor sensor. I'm going to get nailed for this :P

I might be in the minority here, but these might help current X owners to upgrade. Current X is really solid.

1.  Like to cross points on the power points.  Expand the focus area.
2.  24 MP
3.  Not just 1 stop improvement in S/N, but 3-4 stops.
4.  Agree
5.  More than a little. 4 stops.

Total programmable buttons.  Canon made a major step with the 1Dx but I would like see them take it all the way.

Also either 1D-series body with APS-H (1.3 crop) or APS-C (1.6 crop) sensor with 24 MP.  Realize that S/N would drop but hopefully Canon can keep the ergonomics the same and DR similar.

OK My turn  :)

So 5D4:

Same 22Mp
All 61 AF points = double & dual cross
RAW, 25K ISO = 6K ISO current X    :) :)
Increase to 7-8 fps RAW
Add ALOT DR to the "NEW" rumor sensor  :) :)
Configurable Minimum Shutter up to 1/8000 at Av, Auto ISO Mode  (Just Like 1Dx)
Exposure Compensation at Manual, Auto ISO Mode (Just Like 1Dx)

 :) :)

1DX2? That would be a stupid name (assuming my recollection is correct that the X was to recognize the 10th anniversary of the 1D).

And/or crossover between 1Ds and 1D4 lines = 1Dx
1Dx | 5D III
85 1.2L II | 100 2.8 | 400 2.8L IS II 
24-70 2.8L II | 70-200 2.8L IS II

Yup, my Samsung Note 3 uses an OLED as well. If you are in a reasonably lit place the OLED screen will have an advantage due to the infinite contrast as a black pixel will be truly black on account of the light for that pixel being completely turned off. Since each pixel is emitting light instead of having a light placed behind the screen the current OLED tech can't create as strong a backlight as a traditionally constructed TFT can and because of that has more difficulty when it is really bright. Sadly.
