Not more zooming up, but maybe lower on the short side

I for one would not be happy with the loss of a 10° angle of view going from 24 mm (84° view) to 28mm (74° view). Checking my database of SX50 EXIF data, I see I use that area of the zoom 19% of the time. Of course I also like the long end of the lens as I use 1200mm (2° view) 34% of the time. That leaves only 47% for the whole rest of the zoom. Maybe I'm just drawn to extremes. On my Full Frame Canon, I love using 12mm (124° view) on my rectilinear Sigma 12-24 wide angle lens.
