If you are shooting JPG, Olympus cameras offer a 2x digital zoom that you can program on a button as a toggle. Sure, like cropping, you are only using a fraction of the image, but I find in practice for normal web shots, it works well. I prefer to have the camera do the cropping, so that I can adequately frame the shot.

If you are shooting JPG+RAW, you get both, cropped JPG and uncropped RAW.
