With bridge camera, you may be able to get the reach, small package and for a fractionof the cost but you will not get matching IQ much less better. And IQ will also include optical compromises of a "highly versatile" lens that tries to do it all. In fact, even with the same camera body (A55 in my case), my travel zoom Sigma 18-250 HSM OS has slightly greater reach but doesn't come anywhere close to Minolta 200/2.8G APO HS.

Remember, the farther you go, the more you may end up relying on higher ISO too which may be okay in very good light conditions but anything less and you may be out of luck.
