Re: RX100 - CAN next generation have better apertures at long zoom?

Surely cropping will not avoid the problem of forelengthening and distortion in such a wide angle lens. If you have a near subject in the centre of the picture and a background feature behind and beside the subject is thrown into the distance this effect will still be there.

In a way, you already have it. You can shoot at 28mm to benefit from the f1.8, and then crop. From an angle of view perspective, the result will be exactly identical to as if you had zoomed, but with the benefit of the wider aperture.

That is why I am not complaining about the 20 megapixels.
