We have a Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ200, which features a (Leica)
25-600mm f2.8 lens (35mm equiv.)

It wouldn't replace a DSLR with equivalent lenses (the RAW images
expose the dirty secrets) - but it's much, much more convenient.

Try a "bridging camera" first; if you can't live with the compromises
(e.g. electronic view finder), step up to a DSLR.
