Hopefully this really happens but I dont see how fuji would really benefit from this.

I hope Fuji make the new camera with a 28-80 F2.8-3.5 zoom

The lens needs to remain small so the zoom can't be too long or have too large an aperture

A zooming hybrid compact would make Sony and the RX100 eat some humble pie. The prime on the X100 makes it a niche product. A short zoom and hybrid viewfinder would transform the camera into the ultimate compact.

A 2.8 zoom lens on an aps-c sensor is going to be pretty large, too large IMO, especially going out 80mm. One reason I don't carry my 7D and 17-55/2.8 is because of how big/heavy it is.
