Future of lens technology

I wonder what will be future trend for lens development.

I guess superzooms will be the most popular. People like one stop solution (e.g. smartphone = phone, organizer, camera(!) etc.).

Improvement in lens technology (optics, materials etc.) means zoom lenses will be lighter and more compact as well as better optics leading to better image quality.

Vibration Control, high ISO improvement etc. will possibly make low light shooting easier without expensive larger aperture lenses??

I understand that primes and larger aperture lenses will always produce better quality pictures, but probably the gap will become narrower (compared to modern consumer zooms).

What do you think?
