PocketNow do a very good job of explaining the differences in zoom technology, especially in relation to minimum focussing distance, arty macros and shallow depth of field. See what you think:
It's impressive that the 2013 Lumia 1020 is still even be used in mainstream testing by high profile USA-based tech sites, let alone winning the test.

In the video above, the most striking differences to me were in video mode, where the Lumia 1020 has significantly less digital noise and less annoying autofocus 'hunting' issues. In fact, the video above has inspired me to head out and do more video capture comparison tests of my own. Anyone fancy a 1020 vs Lumia 950 video shootout across a wide variety of scenes and subjects?
