I don't know about impossible... But it would be hard.

The closest I can think of is the Fujifilm finepix X20, which has a 28-112 (4x) equivalent f2-f2.8 on a 2/3" sensor.

To put that on a 1" sensor requires a lens about 50% longer and 50% wider than the X20's.

Making it f2 all the way through and giving it 5x zoom would add considerably more than that.

I hear what you are saying. I'm glad Sony have shown an interest in expending their 1" sensor lineup with the RX10, but personally I would have liked to have seen even the same RX100 28-100mm lens as a constant aperture f/2.0.

Obviously it would be much larger than the existing RX100/M2, but for those like me who don't absolutely require a pocketable camera it would be a nice option.
