G1X mkii + NX

FWIW, I have been complaining that Samsung hasn't released something in between (in terms of price and size/weight, but mainly size/weight) the 18-55 and the 16-50 f/2-f/2.8. I have been eyeing the Fuji X-E1 with 18-55 f/2.8-f/4 as an "everyday zoom" for weeks.

Now comes G1X mkii.  Pleasantly surprised by the Canon announcement. Will likely hold off on the Fuji, and get the G1X as an "everyday zoom." NX will be for primes.

That lens spec/size is impressive: http://j.mp/MdY2td  Is that physically possible?  The elements must really all be crammed in there when the barrel is contracted, no?

Thoughts?
