Wishlist.. a DP1Q Zoom
1

While a fixed FL Dp2Q (at the 45mm equiv) is fine..  and the 75 equiv is OK (would prefer a bit more separation from the 2Q (eg. 85 or 100mm equiv), the wide angle body in the series I really think would be awesome if it offered a little zoom.

I realize there is some amount of tradeoff/giveback when using a zoom lens.  That said, perhaps a minimal zoom amount (eg. 1.5x) could have been designed and implemented without too much IQ degradation.  Who would like to see eg. a 24-35mm or 20-30mm equiv DP1Q ?   Just speaking for myself, I'd see boatloads more utility out of such a camera than a fixed 28mm.   That said, I'm far from a lens engineer, so don't know what real tradeoffs in IQ would have to be made to accommodate.
