My apologies for misunderstanding the direction of this discussion. Your original post referenced Cybershot compacts and Panasonic and Olympic hybrids, but things quickly turned to live professional sports and opera, crane shots, dolleys and Hitchcock.

Posters like you questioned the value of power zooms. So, pros use them and therefore they must be valuable for nonpros who buy hybrids and compacts. For, example, surely many nonpros shoot sports, so we can surmise that a zoom is useful to them. And we have at least a few examples of the value of power zooms for interviews, concerts. And many nonpros use drones, and now consumer drones with cameras tout power zooms.
