Optics Theory - This forum is aimed towards the TECHNICAL side of photographic OPTICS THEORY. There will be some overlap by camera/manufacturer, but this forum is for the heavy duty tech discussions. This is NOT the place to discuss a specific lens or lens line, do that in the appropriate forum. This is the forum to discuss optics or lenses in general, to learn about the tech behind the lenses and images. IF you have a question about a specific lens, post it in the forum about that type of camera, NOT HERE.

It means small & light lenses providing they can be made to focus and have adjustable focal lengths. How about fast lenses as good wide open as stopped down?

I assume the chromatic aberrations are controlled by coatings rather than additional elements. Focal length by glass thickness and density properties or perhaps plastic or other material.

it will be a breakthrough with new lenses in 5-20 years or a bust.
