"I wonder when (or if) we'll see a 10-50"

Or even better - a 10-85? I realize that this may be defeating the purpose of having a small camera, but 10-85 is still relatively small if it only has to cover the 9x13mm sensor, and such a potentially lightweight thing would be wonderful for us old weaklings. On top of that, if they could add VR and a larger aperture, that would be perfect (and it would still be a relatively small package)! So far I have resorted to DX lenses with the FT1, but that adds some unnecessary mass and volume to the entire system, and the DX lenses don't go as wide as 10mm.

D800, D750, and a handful of lenses.

10-85, that would be 25-212 mm FX. Why would you want that?
Sure I would like a 20-300 (FX) mm lens, but that will be of low quality, since ther range is so great.

I would like to see a really wide angle like 14 mm (FX), that is about 6 mm CX.

AND I would like a boost in biggest diafragm, just for bokeh issues (sharp/unsharp fields) that is.
