OK, I'll bite;

1) Yawn. My Pentax K5 has it and I never use it.
2) I find the buffer on my M8 adequate, so as long as it is not worse, then 
I am fine.
3) Double yawn.
4) YES. I find the hybrid viewfinder on my Fuji X100 the most significant 
photo technology innovation of the past several years. The main reason I 
like it is that it allows for macro shooting without parallax error.
5) Not a big deal for me, I just have a couple of spares in my bag.
6) The norm? Since when? 12 or 18 is more than enough.
7) More yawn.
8) YES! A usable ISO 6400 would be great. Surely Leica can do as well as my 
Pentax K5?!
9) Sure, why not. Will make the second-hand M9 I plan to buy once the M10 is 
released and the "must-have-the-latest" crowd are upgrading in volume, 
10) No.
