Well the problem is if you want a big zoom range and a big sensor, you need a big lens, and those aren't cheap.

 

So either get a mirrorless/dslr for the big sensor, but then you need a big zoom lens for the super tele zooms, or get a camera with a small sensor and a big zoom range.

Can't find much out there. Once you start getting bigger lenses, super wide zoom lenses.

 

Do you really need a super zoom? what focal lengths are you looking for?

 

Have you looked at micro four thirds systems?

 

Or just get a bridge camera, the image quality is fine for many uses.

If your looking for a b cam, why not just get anouther canon apsc dslr/mirrorless?

 

You can get them pretty cheap too if your willing to go used, and can get a lot of ef lenses for them.

It’s a 1” type sensor (actually a fairly common format in the broadcast world), and the lens goes to 111.6mm (multiply by 2.7x to get your FF equivalent). The aperture is 2.8-4.5, so usable, but not especially fast. Audio inputs are available. Only big flaw is the $1900 price tag. 
 

Otherwise, maybe an m4/3 mirrorless might be more suitable?

The pursuit of knowledge for the sake of knowledge.

Forever in search of my reason to exist.

If you're looking at bridge cameras with 1 inch sensors, there's quite a few, from Canon, Panasonic & Sony to name a few brands.  I'm currently using a 6 year old Panasonic FZ1000, works fairly well for me.  (I might eventually want to upgrade to a full-frame dSLR / mirrorless, but I'm not planning to for another few years or so.)
