    You have to have enough light for it to switch, otherwise you would get horrible pictures.

    So, if you dont have enough light, this x2 it's digital :/

    But Apple should mention that.

    Exactly, i tested this in good light conditions and and zoom lens worked fine. If i rest my finger over the 2x lens...i can see it blocking the image. :)

    I agree with that. Apple should of mentioned it. They should of also made it a setting that the user could choose to turn on or off, at their wish. Have to wonder if the quality really would suffer more than it does with the digital zoom.

    My guess is, in low light, the 2x digital zoom from the wide camera is probably better than the 2x optical zoom from the telephoto lens.

    Definitely -- the telephoto wouldn't make sense in low light. Regardless, Apple opened up the camera APIs to third-party developers so you can try it however you like with a third party app.
