3) FF camera with a fixed lens for around $1G. Who wouldn't want an excellent image quality in a small package like this:

Well, there is a reason not to make a camera like that. It would be packing a very expensive FF sensor. This lens is an f/4.8-13. You could get exactly the same results building a camera around a Four Thirds sensor and an f/2.4-6.5 lens (provided you shifted the base ISO to 1/4 of the FF camera's base ISO). Such a camera would be smaller, much cheaper and the results would be indistinguishable. Coupling a slow zoom lens with a FF sensor in a compact camera just does not make sense.
