Since the A1 is a 28-200mm (7x optical) + 2x digital.
Just like camera makers then to boast 40x zoom! (C-750UZ, 10x optical + 4x digital)
or Panasonic's FZ-10 (12x optical + 3x optical) = 36x
So to the unwise consumer the C-750UZ's 40X beats the shit out of Panasonic's FZ-10's 36X (sometimes they even stick stickers proclaiming loudly the "40X, biggest zoom" on the camera body to attract attention, in actual fact, it is the largest zoom FACTOR, and not necessarily means the furthest zoom)
But they are not aware, without the crappy digital zoom.
Olympus's C-750UZ is a 35-350mm f/2.8-3.7
Panasonic FZ-10 is a 35-420mm f/2.8 (constant)
