Thanks Mario for that information.

I think the Sony WX350 seems really to be more comparable with the 20x zoom models, as it has a 25-500mm, f/3.5-6.5 lens.

It is certainly very small (smaller than the ZS30), but to achieve that they “cut down” the sensor, according to a preview of the WX350 (here ):

“Also worth mentioning is that in order to make a 25-500mm lens for a body this small, Sony took one of its 1/2.3-inch type 20-megapixel Exmor R CMOS sensors and used only the center 18 megapixels of it, basically making an already small sensor even smaller.”
