    I would just like to ask if there's much difference in terms of level of zoom for a 3x optical vs a 3.8x vs a 4x?!

    Its hard to say what the difference will be, because the "zoom" is all based on the range of the lens. So, an 18-54 is a 3x, and a 100-300 is a 3x. A 15-60 is a 4x, and an 18-54 is a 4x, but the difference isn't earth shattering with that. Give us examples from what cameras you are looking at.
