Ricoh shouldn't try to make the lens really fast if the size is to remain small. If the modest zoom I suggested (less than x2 multiplier) needs to be f/4.0-5.6 to be really small instead of f/2.8-4.0, so be it. Low light performance will still be as good as any combination that uses a smaller sensor and a similarly sized lens, so there's no loss, except maybe for those fixated on numbers rather than actual utility.

The GR line was f2.8 for a long time.
