The 18-270mm isn't as fast, wide or as good as a (theoritical) high-end 24-200mm f2.8 lens.

A theoretical 24-200/2.8 would cost $4k alone, weight at least 3 kg, and possibly require phasing some of its elements into hyperspace for focusing and zooming. Yeah, you just jumped from "impractical" all the way to "physics-defying feat of engineering".

Furthermore, the A37/18-270 combination doesn't offer the advantages such a bridge camera would offer (see previous post).

Then get a micro four-thirds with the 14-140 instead.
