Constant f/3.5? You're almost there with the FZ150. It starts at f/2.8 and slowly decreases the aperture, so it's still f/4 at 300 mm, and doesn't ramp up to f/5.2 until the last part of the range. Canon's tend to do the opposite, and ramp up quickly to a small aperture and then stay there the rest of the way out. The result is that the FZ150 is considereably faster at all the middle focal lengths.

Well it should start at wider aperture say f/2.8 again so not constant anymore.

The new HS50 will most likely get f/4.0 or f/3.5 (finger crosses) at 600mm then will increment up to f/5.6 at 1000mm.
