It's more or less a 2" cube. So it is smaller in every dimension than an RX-1 (2.55") is slim. Think of a 35mm P&S from the film days. Take that lens and build a box around it.

It'll be like holding a loupe, except it's a camera!

BTW, the idea is that the lens is completely fixed. There are no moving parts. The sensor itself is moved back and forth by about 7~8 mm to achieve focus.

Because good enough is simply not good enough.

Interesting thought experiment. I'm not an engineer so I can comment on whether it would be possible to put an APS-C sensor and decent lens in a box of that size. [And even at that size, carrying it in my jeans pocket is still ruled out ... would keep my RX100 for casual shooting]. I still have a problem with the cube shape. Not sure that it would be possible to hold steadily ... what do you think. And is there an increased danger of dropping it?
