A world of difference. Optical is useful and uses the lens like a pair of binouculars to magnify the image with virtually no loss of quality.

All digital does is effectively crop the image removing the outer pixels. You end up with a lower res image.

You can do this better (usually) in post processing and especially with something like Genuine Fractals.

So forget digi zooms - worthless in my opinion
