X100 multi?
2

The other day I was cleaning out some drawers and I found my old Hanimex 110 film camera. It's a flat brick shape that you hold more like a set of binoculars.

Here's a link from classic cameras

By sliding a lens engagement switch you can flip from 28 to 43mm.  I thought... "Wouldn't that be fun in a compact?" Some sort of arrangement with two lenses built-in?

The X100 looks like it has about half its lens elements recessed in the body.  Made me wonder if a camera body design of somewhat similar proportions to the X100 could accommodate 28mm APSC (40/42mm FF equivalent) pancake lens on the front and then stuff the body with a switchable wide convertor to give a 18mm ASPC (27-28mm equivalent).

From the front it would look like a fixed lens compact, just one hiding a second focal length inside...
