i have a lot of misconceptions on lenses so. if zoom factor is a relatively meaningless number, how do you figure out, without actually using a lens, if it has the magnification you require. also if a zoom factor of 3 is generally all you get thats useable, will a lens that starts at 11 have less magnification than a lens that starts at 28, even if both lens'es have a zoom factor of 3? sorry if my questions seem simple, but i genuinely dont know this stuff and want to learn
