Yes, sir. And 100% crops of photos will not be the same as optical zoom at all. With optical zoom, there is a change in perspective. With digital zoom it is just cropping. This camera does little more than high resolution cropping. It is still impressive technology, but not the same as even an inexpensive point and shoot with a 3x optical zoom. DSLRs will give a very good depth of field when zooming in.
