I cannot understand why smartphones are spoken of as credible competitors to top-end point-and-shoots when they lack optical zoom. Am I one of the few who really cares about optical zoom? The 70mm-equiv extra lens in the latest smartphones does help a lot, but something like the G5X mkII goes to 120mm, and if Canon and Sony etc. want to keep this category alive they can try to offer longer zoom options.

I also don’t understand how the iq of this amazing p&s (I bought it a week ago for $600) is only marginally better than what you get from a premium smartphone!

Isn’t a 1” sensor significantly larger than what they put in smartphones? Also the optics on the G5m2 are clearly far superior than anything on a smartphone. And then there are the control buttons which provides for a far more satisfactory shooting experience. Only the smartphone generation would not understand this.
