A new, well done, 21-135 AFS/VR.. would it be SO difficult to make?
9 months ago

Hello everyone

after seeing so many super zooms (some do have ridiculous range) and even more ridiculous bridge cameras offering 30,40,50, even 60x zooms in spite of a tiny sensor as if we'd all were looking for "the longer, the better" (hey, stabilization aside, try framing anything for real - not fixed points - above 600mm if you're able!)

Now, Sony with the RX10 gave the opportunity to range from 24 to 200mm on a relatively large sensor. Let's do even better while maintaining size relatively compact. What about a 21-135 f/2.8 (or a 24-90 f/2), the very basic of classic Leica photography (on a 1" sensor) or 21-135 F/4 on a larger sensor ? Instead of pursuing useless reaches (1440mm, the last one I could heard of) Why not doing something really useful and well done ? Is it that difficult ?

Simply wondering.
