Nikon and Canon can do it for their FF line. Why not Fuji?

Apart from convenience, I've nothing good to say about superzooms be they Nikon, Canon or Fuji. Mediocre image quality at best - I'd rather not 'get the shot' than come home with a cr@ppy one.

The Olympus 12-100 f4 shows it's actually possible to release a zoom with a large range AND excellent IQ.

It's doable provided that:

  • customers are willing to pay the price (won't be cheap)
  • lens designers are skilled enough
