Hey BoR, i own the Sony Cyber-Shot HX90V, which is a quality 30x pocketable zoom (w/ evf) and i have to call "BS" on this genre of tiny sensor super zoom.  Like hi MP count... it is sooooo wasted on a tiny sensor!   Stick to (at least) 1"... like the RX10iii.  The usefulness of more range is GREATLY exaggerated, even on a larger sensor!  On the smallest sensors it is ridiculous.  = just a marketing #

And no... u r  limited to 800mm EFL.   600 in a compact/affordable version
