I agree. These small variable apertures zooms don't make much sense to me either. Nikon hobbled their DX format zoom lenses the same way, (with the one exception of the 17-55 f2.8 of course). I was hoping Nikon wouldn't hobble the Nikon 1 systems cameras with these small variable aperture zooms, but apparently my hope was misplaced

. I would like to see a 10-30 f2.8 VR and a 10-50 f4 VR, but I doubt it will happen anytime soon, if at all.

Haven't done it for DX, I see little hope for CX. Same lament, it would be real nice to have walkaround lens in F4 (18-105)...............nothing, nada, zip.
