With the 1/2.3" sensors, compacts can reach up to 30x optical zoom (with accompanying IQ compromises) - I just don't understand why there isn't a single compact out there with a 10x optical range (say 24-240) and 1/1.7" sensor - surely this must be possible!

No Canon.

But http://www.dpreview.com/previews/olympus-stylus-1 has 10.7 zoom, 28-300mm, 1/1.7" sensor.
