Nobody is questioning the merits of a 300mm optical zoom - if you need 20mp photos at that focal length. For videos though all you need is 4mp bayer pattern resolution to give you a true 2mp 1080p motion picture. Obviously using a smaller area of the sensor will degrade sensitivity and quality if light levels are low but outdoors it might just work fine and it does with the Rx100 - at a crop factor of 400mm for 1080p videos.

Best wishes,
