schmintan-

There are a number of lenses that fall into the 28-300mm (in 35mm terms) focal length. When the generally used DSLR multiplier of 1.5X is applied (because most of the DSLR cameras, except Olympus, use the APS-C CMOS imager which is smaller that a fuul size 35mm negative: 24 X36mm) the effective focal length of those lenses are therefore, an effective focal length of 42-450mm which compares quite favorably, and even exceeds the focal length, in 35mm terms of the Pansonic FZ-7.
