I have an Olympus XZ-1 with an old Pen VF-1 optical viewfinder, for bright days when I can't see the screen. My stepson showed up with a new Panasonic FZ-150 -- electronic viewfinder, 600mm lens -- and I was able to take a picture of a passing small plane, about a mile away, through tree branches -- just like that.

I don't think I could have taken that picture with a large DSLR. No way at all. The size, caused by the mirror-space needs. And -- for that kind of zoom -- an insanely heavy, hard-to-hold zoom.

I believe the future belongs to mega-zoom point 'n shoots with increased sensor quality.
