Why? Cell phones have killed this market.

Maybe, but if it has an APS-C sensor as previous lens patents have suggested, maybe not.

Have they killed the Olympus MFT market ? Or the aps-c market ? The G1X series can offer really good IQ for a decent size output. Personally I much prefer it to an M with standard zoom lens.

Not the pro compact market.

I'm still waiting for a good cell phone with an optical zoom.  When that day happens it may kill/reduce the need for cameras like this but until then....

It would be awesome :)

would be for sure.  and would they got APS-C/DPAF nice sensor in there as well, and really rock it out?

probably not because we're not allowed to have nice things.

Now you are asking too much :p   However, with that lens, I would also be happy with the M6 sensor.

Cell phones killed the cheap small sensor market(except for super zooms).  The large sensor APS-C market does quite well, even the smaller 1 inch sensor bodies sell well.

For smaller sensor compacts yes, but superzoom, travel cameras and compacts with larger sensor(1") are doing quite well. I have been using Sony RX100 Mk2 instead of cell phone as my daily shooter.
