I realize that this topic has been raised before, but I found this Graham Houghton video on the subject to be of interest:

If I understand him correctly, he is saying that i.zoom is superior to EX zoom and that both are better than regular digital zoom (which is probably right). But it surprised me that he believes that i.zoom is superior to EX zoom. I would have thought it would be the other way around.

I believe this is only true for 1" and larger sensor models. For smaller-sensored models i.Zoom doesn't offer much.

That could be because Graham produced a video some time ago about the FZ200 (smaller sensor) in which he stated exactly the opposite. That is, EX zoom is preferable to i.zoom.
