My dream lens is a 7-800mm f/1.2 IS that weighs 1/4 pound and has perfect sharpness all over and cost $20 US. If they can make a little robot that flies to mars and drives around doing science experiments there is NO reason why my dream lens can't happen.
Sooner or later if humans don't extinct themselves first, optics will move into the field of organics and genetic engineering. Think something like, a cloned eagle eye developed in a laboratory. So sooner or later you'll likely get your wish, just maybe not in the form you originally had in mind. Don't laugh, it's probably not even as far away as we might imagine, and it would probably lend itself better to a DIY project than grinding your own glass with a dremil.
Imagine being the first photographer on Mars...
