    how abt replacing glass with polycarbonate?

    are there any ongoing R&D being conducted for such purpose? for one, lens need not be heavy anymore...

    I have a simpler wish... a blend between a Tessar and a Plannar at low cost. That will make me happy... errm...make that a 4/3 mount please... LOL.

    probably more DO (from Canon) type of lenses from diff manufacturers. using high refractive index glass juz like those used in specs? that shud keep the weight down considerably. hopefully also the price.

    what if you consider 1 tiny liquid lens per pixel site... you might get 1200mm f1.0.

    Only drawback would be condensation and freezing of such a tiny lens.

    A lens which is smaller in diameter, meaning scaled down sensor, lens, and all the electronics
    by 1/5. With improvements in electronics, we expect low noise, high ISO 3200, 500mm F/1.4 IS USM and weight only 250gram.

    But the IMRE one is so lame.. Look at the Philips one, that's what I call a real fluid lens!

    Tamron used to have something like that via the Adaptall mount.

    How about Nano Crystal Coating? http://www.photoscala.com/node/view/431

    Doesn't make it scratch resistant but it claims to eliminate internal reflection.

    And a lens which incorporated this coating is already in the market.
