Re: Bridge camera with large sensor?

Build your own, then. First, get a Sony A37. Then, buy it a Tamron 18-270mm. Then, attach the Tamron to the mount point of the A37. Voila! instant large-sensor superzoom.

Of course, file quality won't be as good as with a decent compact (you can't fix poor optics with a large sensor), but it's good enough as a kit that it's gathered quite a few fans already, and I suppose in terms of flexibility there's little out there that can match it. As with everything YMMV, but still.
