Hm.. why there are not any 10x-15x cameras ?

Hi I am using a sx220hs camera as my always have with me camera. It fits nicely into my jacket's pocket (even though I can fit slightly larger body there too).

This camera has a 14x optical zoom and I am looking for a replacement without sacrificing the zoom I have too much.

Lets see some of the options

-Canon sx280hs just kept adding zoom without improving optics or image quality considerably. I find zoom fun to have but I am not fun of super large zoom as I need tripods

-I am able to sacrifice a bit of my zoom moving lets say from 14x to 10x but then I lack find a camera up to 300 euros (better around 200 second hand) that would increase quality

-Nikon p7700 ǵives me a 7x and larger sensor but then I find I will miss the fun of large zoom (i.e zooming at birds at ceilings).

-There are some other products but nothing small enough to fit in a large size jacket pocket...

Is there a lack in the market or not?
