Olympus upcoming RAWsumer may have a 26-100mm f1.8-2.4 lens?

43rumors writes that Japanese patent-hunting blog Egami (in English) has spotted an Olympus patent that shows a lens that could be the one powering the upcoming Olympus RAWsumer, a 26-100mm f1.8-2.4. The 35mm equivalent focal range is based on the assumption of a 1/1.63" sensor like the Panasonic LX5. With a 1/1.7" sensor, Egami calculates a "shift" to 28-110mm equivalent.

Obviously 26mm f1.8 is not a shocker, but 100mm f2.4 would generate some excitement! The lens diagram (from the patent) is included at Egami.
