Stylus 1 and focal length

Hi folks,

I'm trying out a Stylus 1 as a carry-everywhere camera when my EM1 & 12-40 lens just feels a little too heavy and bulky for me. Have to say I'm loving it so far! One thing is puzzling me, and I'm wondering if anyone can help me. When I look at the exif info on my pics, the focal length information doesn't seem to tally with what I'm expecting it to be. Fully zoomed, which I think should be 300 mm, it says 64.3. Other times, it says 6 mm! I can't figure out what it's doing here. Anyone know the answer to this?

I was also wondering if it's possible to see the actual FL in camera whilst using it, rather than the 3x, 5x etc zoom info? Been looking for this info online and in the instruction manual (which I haven't finished reading yet, so it could be there!) but haven't found anything so far.

Thanks in advance.

Liz
