I'm still waiting for someone to come up with a 1/1.7" super zoom. Maybe even a 1" sensor zoom.

Fuji has the 1/1.7". It needs a little improvement yet. Nikon's 1" is crying out for two handfuls of DSLR body and as much superzoom as can be packed onto it.

Nikon wants us to use their DSLR lenses on the Nikon 1 when longer focal lengths are required.  Unfortunately, these lenses were never designed to resolve the higher density pixels from the Nikon 1.  Not sure when/if we will ever see 200mm+ native lenses for the Nikon 1.
