Yeah, not going to happen. At least not in a camera of RX100 size. A sensor of similar size (1") and a 28-140mm f/1.4-2.2 lens would result in a lens of pretty monstrous proportions. Definitely not pocketable. Look at Panasonic LX7 (f/1.4-f/2.3), Olympus XZ-1 or XZ-2 (f/1.8-f/2.5) and extrapolate from there...

Of course, I wish that I'm going to be proved wrong and Sony has achieved some unforeseen technological breakthrough to make such a camera possible...
