Re: probably poorer IQ but better than sub 1" generation compacts

As I say I don't think a zoom lens fixed on a mFT which retracts small enough to have a plus point over say 12-50 etc, would offer any where near as good optics

However, as with the other new larger format fixed lens compacts, it would be better than the sub 1" compacts.

ANY collapsible lens could be smaller than the Oly 12-50 and a good one could have better IQ, So why not?

A mFT camera with the lens equivalent of the Sony RX100 (12-50mm, F2-4) a size of about the RX1 and the build quality of the RXes ... . Would be ideal for ca 80% of the photos I make. If you add built in EVF and tilt/shift screen ...

Too beautiful a dream? Peter
