Ok lets make a camera for the smart people, lets call it an FZ400 and make it 20-400mm F2.8 across on an 8mp 1/1.7" BSI sensor (maybe even 2/3rds)... lets also see an LX-16 with a 16-112mm F2.0 with a 10mp 1" BSI sensor.

Those might make me head for the camera store.

I couldn't agree more.  I would love to see a larger sensor zoom with wide aperture.

But the manufacturer has to consider:

1. Would it sell enough?

2. Would it butcher sales of their other products?

I hope Panasonic sold enough FZ200's to consider going a bit further and making this happen.
