140mm at f2.2 is hard to believe if sensor and overall size is to be the same, but if they somehow pull this off, it will raise the bar again for large sensor compact.

it would be physically impossible for a camera the size of RX100. The front lens would have a theoretical minimum diameter of 24mm; in real life, especially with a complex (WA to tele zoom) lens design, size will be significantly more than 24mm.  A much bigger lens for RX200 seems very unlikely, so at best the f2.2 is a typo .

If the rumour has substance, could it be some sort of trickery with seamless optical to digital zoom? Say 70mm @ F2.2 plus digital 2x?
