I won't use the abhorrent 'Q' as an example here but I'm optimistic about the upcoming 2/3 systems... If there could be more consumer priced (read: cheaper but not lacking sharpness) small lenses for such a system I think there could be a wide acceptance and considerable practical application.

NX and other APS-C cameras are limited by the physics of the bigger sensor, mount distance and weight/size of the lenses. The new Panasonic collapsing kit is a step in the right direction, but how cool would it be if the whole thing could be scaled down (lens wise) with a body in the $400 range and some lenses in the $99-150 segment, like the Nifty Fifties of the Canikon library? And light, small and 'quirky' to boot?

I'd be very interested, but the quality would need to be at least on par with mirrorless to work. I don't see the Q system doing that, at least not sensor-wise. 2/3", maybe.

Here is a picture to show what to expect with the very tiny Q system.
