Hope the lens of a potential XZ-20 turns out to perform better than the one of its predecessor. The XZ-10 lens is not a highlight with quite bad chromatic aberration. It falls off from the quality lens of the XZ-1 / XZ-2.

I remeber that Olympus was making its P&S departments budget tighter. Its surprising to see that they will still continue on 1/2.3 sensors.... Sure its a razor sahrp lens, but its so little sensor, so the image size i think...

hope they won´t announced something as "86 mpx !" some kinda high number to impress buyers only

Indeed, I'm amazed that Oly thinks 1 2/3 sensors have a future when mobile phones have such good cameras. Anything bellow 1 1/7 sensors could be reasonably declared dead-end for digital cameras.

Not to mention their older patent (probably the XZ - 3 lens), which is a 28- 112 F1.4 - F1.8 lens for 1 1/7 sensor: http://egami.blog.so-net.ne.jp/2013-01-08If they can design and produce such a lens, the one for XZ -20 seems seriously undespeced.

I think that such a lens would be more likely to make its appearance in an XZ-3.  That would then nicely leapfrog the Panasonic FZ-7, matching the lens aperture but beating it on reach.
