Another question is why you think you need a 30x zoom ?

In practical terms how long a reach do you need ?
And how wide an angle ?

Most people simply don't need these insane zooms any more than they need the huge megapixel counts.

On most days, I would never need a 30x zoom lens. But there have been many occasions (although not common) in which I needed to shoot something far off in the distance, say a small colorful bird in the top of a tree or an elk at 300 yards.
