It would not be smaller than RX10, just the 80-300mm model would be a lot bigger due to the 300mm. Not a good idea, this would not have any practical advantage except maybe optimizing the optical performance of the lens which would be tele only (but the target audience doesn't seem very interested in high optical quality ...).

Hey, I didn't even say the f number.

Lens for smaller sensor is always proportionally smaller. The advantage is all the more pronounced in the tele focal range, when a lens can get just too big. Sony's 1" sensor is very competitive in IQ and holds great potential if paired with quality glass. It should be taken good advantage of. A fixed tele zoom seems to make a lot of sense to me.

There is a 70-300mm equiv. zoom for Nikon 1. But this works be

That lens is 189-810mm FF equivalent.

cause Nikon 1 has removable lenses ...

I think the opposite is true: fixed lens has the advantage of retracting a little into the body to be smaller, as well as optimized matching of sensor and lens.
