1/3" cameras combined with a cheaper stock lens have the problem that diffraction starts around f2.8 or f4 or thereabout. While the lens is optimal around F5.6. Hence you get a rather limited range of f-stops where that combo will look decent.

Also: There really isn't any zoom lens priced to match the HPX370 that will resolve 1080 lines vertically across a 1/3" chip. So you will get a somewhat soft image. If you want 1080 resolved optically across a 1/3" chip you would need something like a DigiPrime or similar.
