Not really - think about how many lenses you'd need for a DSLR, to cover 20mm through to 1200mm... and how big and heavy they would be. Not to mention how much they'd cost. Isn't that the point of a superzoom?

I'm already in DSLR territory by taking a teleconverter when I go to airshows with my FZ200. If I had 1200mm (actually just 900mm would do)... I could ditch the teleconverter and half the weight...!
