This reminds me of something... I know, the DA* 25-350mm f/3.3-5.6 lens patent.

Relative crop between Pentax APS-C and 1/1.7 sensor: about 3.1.

3.1 * 7.5 = 23.25mm
3.1 * 120 = 372mm

The equivalent apertures are also remarkably similar:
Increase 1.6 by about 3.2 stops: should be about 3.3
Increase 1.9 by about 3.2 stops: should be about 5.6

Could the release dates also be similar?
DA* 25-350: never
This new lens: 3.1 * never = really never

Seriously, though, seeing as this lens would be faster than the fastest lens - being zoom or prime - currently available for the Q system, I have to say I'm having a really hard time believing this will result in an actual product launch.

When you read some rumors of a Canon G17 with a 1" sensor and x7 zoom opening f/1.2 ; i just think this new Q lens wouldn't even compete...

Impressive, but the new rumored Q lens will be 3x the length on the tele end compared with the rumored G17, in terms of FOV. Completely different objectives.

Yes, my main concern is aperture in relation to sensor size

A new Q body is desperately needed, IMO. $500 Q-S1 with a low-res fixed LCD? Meh.


$500? Got mine on Amazon a couple weeks ago for less than $200

Obviously I'm going by list price, where the Q-S1 + kit zoom is $450-500, depending on color.

My Q7 + 5-15 was $159.
