However, i take exception w/ the "bigger is better". It's easier to build a bigger engine, scope, system etc. than a smaller one.That's why 50 yrs ago IBM's 360 needed a big room and special power plugs, to do less than an iPhone.

So far Moore's Law hasn't been applicable to optical design. I have no doubt that the electronics in digital cameras can shrink considerably in size and weight. It's the photons that don't seem to want to scale.
