Cropping or digital zoom?
6 months ago

My new E-M10 has a 2x digital tele-converter setting. This is the first advanced digital camera that I have owned (except for a Sony a65 which I didn't like and never used). I remember reading some articles a few years ago stating that digital zoom should never be used, but it seems to me that it would deteriorate IQ no more than cropping a picture. So if I use the 2x digital tele-converter setting will it have the same effect on IQ as cropping or should it not be used? Thanks.
