The updated version of the NEX-7 in the hope that the current model will be going for a couple of hundred dollars off so I can justify buying it. Also waiting for the E-mount 35 and interested in the 10-18 particularly in light of the excellent review at LL. I'd also like to see an affordable 24 and something like a 16-50 f2.8-f4.

I'm afraid my camera cupboard must remain as is...too many other expenses happening...but I do keep thinking about that X100 wide angle adapter.

I think the dust settled for me in April when both the X-Pro and then, a couple weeks later, the OMD showed up and I was able to get both of them very quickly (being in NYC for the month). Those cameras were exactly what id been waiting for, it turned out, and I haven't wanted, even vaguely, any other camera since outside of the compact segment. I'm still interested in new lenses - I'll probably get the Fuji 14 and will probably get one of the new fast 35mm equivalent lens's from Olympus or Fuji (but not both and I'm not sure which yet). But otherwise, it's hard for me to imagine what else I'd want in a system camera.
The RX100 really blew the doors off of the compact segment, so the dust has just been stirred up there and will take a good while to settle. I never warmed up to the RX100 at all, despite its amazing sensor, but knowing what's possible now has me in a holding action with the X10 as the best compromise for me at the moment, but I know at some point in the next year or so some other compacts will show up with sensors to compete with the RX100 in functional cameras I actually like and I'll probably have to try a few of them before I settle. But that segment now appears to have the capability to change the way I carry and shoot about 75-80% of the time, so I'm anticipating a big year and a big shake out in those cameras.
But for system stuff, the cameras I've wanted are well and fully HERE and I'm thrilled with the OMD and X-Pro every time I take one out and shoot.

Someone to make a 24 or 25mm f2.0 lens in M mount for my GXR-M.

Waiting for a Medium Format kit, with an 80mm lens to hit about $5000.
The next couple of days I've hired me a D800 body with a 24-70 and a 50mm, to try and see if I enjoy the shooting experience.

I'm waiting to see if the RX100 can deliver good enough results to be my primary camera.
Going on a trip in January where I'm going it bring it along with a (non-Merrill) Sigma DP.
Oddly buying the RX100 has pretty much sated my GAS for now, hopefully it'll last a while :)

I bought the RX100 almost a month ago, and after 1200 shots I'm entirely convinced this can be my only camera. The only thing that sometimes limits me is dof control, but for the kind of pictures I do these days that's no big deal. I can't afford to keep anything else at the moment, so I'm selling the rest of my gear. We'll see what 2013 will bring.

I'm looking forward to the new Oly 17/1.8. Peeved that it only comes in silver though. I suppose Oly will release it in black later as a special edition for $300 extra.
A new Pen with built in EVF would be awesome.
RX200 with a 24-100 equivalent lens f1.4-2.5 lens. And built in OVF.
RX1 to sell for $799.
M4/3 versions of the Oly 12-60/2.8-4 and 50-200/2.8-3.5.
Fuji to REALLY improve the AF of the XPro1/XE1 series and use a faster processor.
A 9mm Glock or Sig Sauer. Maybe .40 instead.
Current Gear: A little bit of this and a little bit of that, but want more!

Only waiting for the RRS L bracket for my DP2M about which I am ecstatic.

In a world of apparent technical superiority of Fuji or Sony sensors, my favourite camera of the year for IQ is still the Canon G1X. That being the case, Canon turning the development of the EOS M system up to 11 and making some genuinely competitive bodies and a decent range of lenses would get my attention. A camera that makes an image like the G1X but with the ability to change lenses, an EVF, and a faster and more refined operation would be legend...
...wait for it...
...wait for it...
But who knows, maybe the magic is in the all-in-one approach.
