RX1 IF 24MM, how big would lens be ????

RX1 with 24mm F2 lens rather than 35mm.

I could never afford the RX1, so my speculations and questions about this new exciting camera are academic I suppose. I am not alone. I miss 24mm on my RX100.

If Sony had made the lens a 24mm fixed f2, on that body, on that sensor, what size might the lens have to be?

I imagine the factors would be:

diameter small enough to fiit the body?

length compared to the 35mm they used?

distance front to back, lens to sensor plane?

corners, keystoning, pincushion

I just need to start wide, and using that large a sensor, with that many pixels, you could get some zoom by using less mp extended optical zoom, and clear zoom, both of which give very good results for me.
