It's very hard to find A30 review, especially the one that tested SR.
Similar sensor-shift based system on Fuji f50d didn't tested that
well. SR on my Pentax K10D DSLR works very well but I'm concerned
about P&S implementation.

Any opinions? How does SR compares to optical IS systems on similar
Canon and Panasonic compacts?


I've not tested the SR on my A30 scientifically but my subjective impression is that it works very well indeed. At least two stops, maybe more, would not surprise me. Certainly has exceeded my expectations. It's a very satisfactory little camera - despite the fact that I broke its screen by including it in checked in luggage with insufficient protection. Didn't cost all that much to get the screen replaced.
