Canon Wonder Camera Concept promises single-lens perfection (video)

Saw this on Engadget:

http://www.engadget.com/2010/07/06/canon-wonder-camera-concept-promises-single-lens-perfection-vid/

Canon is pretty confident that by then (around 2030) it'll have figured out how to do a single lens capable of going from macro shots all the way out to a 5000mm focal length.

apparently it's small enough to fit in a young girl's hands.

This non-interchangeable lens is backed by an all-touch interface (say sayonara to your knobs and dials), an extremely high-resolution sensor, and image stabilization so advanced as to make shooting at that unspeakably high zoom range a viable option.

Finally, the whole lurid dream is topped off with video-only capture.

Canon argues you won't need to shoot stills when its video is capable of keeping everything in focus all the time -- you'll just pick out your favorite scene from the movie reel.

I wonder how much this will cost?
