bear in mind that these ~28-300 are genuinely 28-300mm lenses.

The superzooms in compacts are generally something like 5m - 55mm with an equivalent field of view to that of a 28-300mm on a 35mm sensor. Th compacts also all pretty much do image processing to correct faults inherent in them (this is now starting to become a trend for ILCs too - it results in cheaper lenses rather than those that are optically correct to start with).
