Currently, if you own a DSLR and want a super-telephoto zoom lens, your cheapest options will be the Sigma 150-600mm and Tamron 150-600mm lenses. If mounted on APS-C cameras, the 1.6x crop factor yields you a 240-960mm full-frame equivalent focal range. However, those lenses alone cost over a thousand dollars each, and you don’t even get the luxury of wide shots with the lowest focal length on offer being 150mm.
Have no fear, the Canon Powershot G3X is here. It is a bridge compact camera, and it has a massive focal range of 24-600mm (that is after factoring the crop factor of approximately 2.7x).
