    If the shot is taken at the same place, zooming in or cropping will give you the same perspective except that details will be lost for cropping.

    optical zoom = using a lens to magnify a subject. All the megapixel used for the frame

    digital zoom aka crop = using magnifying glass to enlarge a photo. Effect like using magnifying glass to look at newspaper - image enlarged but so is pixel (hence less megapixel/length => poor IQ)

    To see effect of zoom on perspective may try this site by Tamron. This site actually shows the zoom ability of Tamron lens but you can appreciate the change in perspective as well
    Idea got, execution not!
