petrocan talks about the ideal lens having 100x zoom and as fast as 1.7. The problem is size and weight.
Size (W x H x L)= 250.6 x 255.5 x 661.5mm
Weight= 26.8kg (59.3lbs)
It's hard to beat physics. Stronger optics to make a long lens smaller means thicker glass but if you want a wider shot the glass would need to be so close it would more than touch the next element.
