RX100 - CAN next generation have better apertures at long zoom?
Jul 22, 2012

The RX100 checks all the boxes that I'd like for a small pocket digicam to complement my mirrorless system except for one thing - the long end of the zoom at 4.9 is too small.

For those of you pros who know the physics, is it possible for Sony (or anyone else) to design the next generation lens with a significantly better aperture - say 1.8 to 2.8 and keep the same form factor except for perhaps a larger lens diameter?

Thanks,
MTMT
