No one cares about the Q enough to fake these.
Ooh, that was below the belt!

Not true, either. People will fake anything, sincerity being acknowledged as the most difficult.

I doubt the 06 is a constant f2.8.
I'd be pleasantly surprised if it is and would likely get one if it is.

f2.8 on a 45mm FL requires an objective diameter of a tad over 16mm. This isn't a superzoom, as the zoom action is only 3:1, so even with an allowance of 20% for internal cropping during zooming etc, that only requires a 20mm objective. Have I missed something (I'm still only on my second coffee for the day, so I may not be functioning correctly, yet)?

I note that this lens fits the Q roadmap, so anyone faking it must have cared enough to do their homework...

Seems to be confirmed, sort of, by Adam on the front page of PF.
