Maybe there might be a GX300 one day or at least a Pentax Optio MX-2 with a nice wide zoom. http://ricehigh.blogspot.com/2013/04/new-ricoh-lens-patents-for-117-sensors.html

Some might find 21-84mm to be useful and the aperture at the wide and the long end is not too slow. But I wonder if the sensor-size of 1/1.7" really is a good decision these days when we might expect the 1" sensor to be something of a standard for these compacts within two year.

There are at least some manufacturers which are expected to come up with new zooms for their top-compacts for next year. Olympus XZ-3, Fujifilm X30 and also Panasonic LX8.
