    I noticed that the 1520 only appears to zoom 2x, however on my 920 I can zoom in much closer (still photos) Why is this?

    I expected the zoom on the 1520 to be greater than the 920 because there is more pixels for the PureView to work with.

    You are correct. 1520 only zooms 2x.

    Digital zoom is really a poor quality substitute for optical zoom. The theory with 1520 is that you are better off with no zoom and cropping in from a 16 or 18MP high res JPG. The result will look better.
