It is still good, as a consumer visiting the site, to see the discrepancy that is still there after a month.

the article states that the HX 400V poor telephoto of 215mm but if you look at the site at sony has the Focal Length (35mm equivalent): Still 1:1: f = 28.5-1425mm / Still 3:2: f = 25-1250mm / Movie 4:3: f = 32.5-1625mm (SteadyShot Standard), f = 34.5-2300mm (SteadyShot Active), 38-2350mm (SteadyShot InteligentActive) / Still 4:3: f = 24-1200mm / 16 Movie 9: f = 26.5-1325mm (SteadyShot Standard), f = 28-1850mmmm (SteadyShot Active), f = 31-1900mm (SteadyShot InteligentActive) so the explanation of the telephoto is not good.
