[REWIND: Possible RX200 With Bright 28-100mm F/1.8-2.8 Lens]

I have to say, that 24-70mm F/1.8-F/2.8 lens is pretty impressive for a compact camera. If I was in the market for a high end compact for vacation or general family use, this is definitely something I would be considering. (Assuming these rumored specs are correct, of course)

So, what are your thoughts on these rumored specs? How do you think this matches up with other high end compact cameras like the current RX100 M2 and Canon G1X Mark II?
