Use the RX100 sensor, make a zoom 28-200, F2 to F4...like Nikon's unit, and smaller than the N, and we have a sports cam !!

Sony made one such camera, albeit with an even faster lens (28-200mm f/2-2.8) and 2/3" sensor. And nine years later, I still use it:

If quality fast zoom lenses could be made in small sizes, and especially with larger sensors, we would see a substantial size/weight reduction in premium lenses.

BUT, with such lens, RX10 would hold no advantage over NEX. Why not just get NEX instead?
