    My question is simple, how does the extended zoom work, and is the
    picture degraded in any way? Thanks in advance.

  2. IIRC, it's a cropped central image.

    It's only smoke and mirrors. If you are in the habit of only shooting
    2 megapixel photos with this 10 megapixel camera then it's excellent,
    but if you're like most people you shoot 9-10 megapixel jobbos with it
    ( I actually prefer 3:2 9 megapixel or even 16:9 shots to the old 4:3
    style that uses 10 megapixel) then all the extended zoom achieves is a
    crop of the sensor, the same as can be easily done afterward by any
    photo software.
    The end result is me ignoring it on my new and excellent FZ28.
