I would like a small camera with a 1/1.7 BSI-CMOS sensor with no more than 16mp and about 24-240mm fixed lens.

24-240 ??

Maybe a lot of people wouldn't notice any difference, but there's an old adage, "the wider the range, the worse the lens". A 24 to 240 would be an awful lens. The most respected Canon L lenses are lenses like the 24-70 L.
