A new, well done, 21-135 AFS/VR.. would it be SO difficult to make?
Feb 9, 2014

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.
