Does this exist?

G'day mate

May I start by saying that I am surprised at your question
Leica cameras are not aimed at the sort of buyer who goes to the corner-store: they are very expensive and therefore purchasers are people who really know what they're after ~ and can afford it

As to why you would want a camera with a zoom but no moving parts is a mystery and a contradiction ... for an optical zoom to operate it must have electro motors which must also move lens elements to & fro > thus moving parts.

I would invite you to examine the DP Review site for Leica cameras - and maybe Panasonic cameras as they & Leica are working together combining camera bodies & zoom lenses

Has Lumix mirrorless & superzoom cameras and loves their amazing capabilities
