With around 2x crop factor and newer lens designs you could probably make something like a 28-200 or even slightly more zoom if you accept F8-F11 at full tele and a G1 X sized camera. It would still be a lot bigger than the TZ-series, but it might be something like that the OP want.

You could probably get down to even f6-8, but then there isn't much advantage over a 1/1.7" sensor and a f2.8-4.5 lens like they have in the G12 and P7100. Gain 3 2-3 stops sensor size advantage and give it back with aperture. Net zero.

So how about a best of both worlds, like Nokia attemps with their 41mp camera that crops when zooming? A 72mp sensor in the G1X could spit out 8mp photos across a 28-336mm equivalent range while never using a smaller sensor area than a superzoom.
