Re: Patent for 28-112mm f/1.4-1.8

This is likely the lens we will see in the XZ3

You'll also notice a 4.4-67mm f2.4-f4.2 lens patent.  This would correspond to a 24-370mm lens using a 1/2.3" sensor.  So the long zoom would not use a 1/1.7" but would compete with the FZ200.

28mm??? This wide end should get wider too. Aa panaaonic did, streched it till 20mm on its superzoom. 28mm is ok but not enought... should at least be 24mm thats! it!
