On the other hand, my point-and-shoot (Canon SX260) has 20x zoom. And I 
will keep dragging around a compact super-zoom until my cell phone can 
do the same. That's why I balked at putting compact point & shoots on 
the kill list. ON THE OTHER HAND, I do see that the rest of the world 
uses their tragically under-performing cell phone cameras for ALL their 
pictures. It's so sad.
