I don't actually -need- any of those :-)
I would like a better buffer and speed but I suspect the price we have for 
the digital M being so small is no space for a big battery and not much 
power to drive faster chips. I am not so sure that battery technology has 
moved on far enough to resolve this. If it needed to be bigger of heavier I 
would stay with the smaller buffer since it is only rarely a limitation for 
I also like the idea of a built in 1.4 magnifier.

I am actually pretty happy with my M9. It is overall the best camera I have 
ever owned.
