Re: Patent for 28-112mm f/1.4-1.8

24mm is obviously tricky to maintain quality over a long focal length range with a 1/1.7" as the Samsung EX2 and the Panasonic LX7 have pretty short zooms and they probably would have liked longer if they could have done. The longer 1/1.7"zooms all start at 28mm so if you want wide you have to lose the zoom or use a 1/2.3".

You'll also notice a 4.4-67mm f2.4-f4.2 lens patent. This would correspond to a 24-370mm lens using a 1/2.3" sensor. So the long zoom would not use a 1/1.7" but would compete with the FZ200.

28mm??? This wide end should get wider too. Aa panaaonic did, streched it till 20mm on its superzoom. 28mm is ok but not enought... should at least be 24mm thats! it!
