Digital point and shoot with the largest aperture?

What is it? Any make.

Why don't they make some wild 0.95 aperture point and shoot? C-mount lenses of that speed exist for reasonable prices.

Or are all digital point and shoot cameras limited to slow zooms?

AF on P&S is far to be as fast and accurate as on an SLR.

DOF with 0,95 Aperture would be too wild to accommodate with a decent performance, by far.

The Leica Digilux 1/Pana LC5 had an f2 Vario-Summicron lens. They are great cameras. They are dated now but work really well for infrared.
