Well, you have the edge on me, because I DO do heavy PP, hence neither compacts nor superzooms are of interest to me.

What's the connection between superzooms and whether or not one does heavy pp?

Because small sensors have less DR at base ISO, so heavy PP is not possible.  A small sensor camera is therefore of no interest to me whatsoever.  But even with a big sensor I have to work at base ISO, so a 150mm f5.8 lens is also totally useless to me, it would be utterly unusable most of the time.  For my particular purposes, an MFT camera plus primes is the answer - MFT has plenty of DR at base ISO, and fast primes keep me there.  I can see why other people have different needs, but I don't see this lens doing much for many people.
