The fz40 works the same way; just lower the image size down from 14M and it will increase the 'zoom'. Since a smaller sensor gives a larger apparent focal length with the same lens, I assume it works by reducing the amount of sensor used. This is not the same as digital zoom.

Sony NEX-5, Panasonic fz40
