Re: are 50x zoom "FAKE"..?

Very Thanks for everyone who is reply to my question about the focal length.
But a special thanks to " Michael Kaplan" about the right answer.
Michael explain that the distance between the sensor and the lens are important to clarify the subjects size, and not the capability of lens zoom.
Kodak start as 6.3mm and Canon start as 4.3mm
so the lens of canon are closest by:  6.3 - 4.3= 2mm
{{ 2mm }} are a {{ BIG }} Significant difference
