poor zoom you could buy the Cannon 16MP for $199 with far better features including 1080p
This comment doesn't help much because you don't tell us which Cannon you're referring to. There are several 16MP Cannons on the Best Buy web site. The least you could do is include a link or model number.
And regarding the zoom, it's appropriate for this class of camera. It's in line with the gold standard Canon S-series and more zoom than the flagship Sony RX100. A longer zoom would compromise that fast f/1.8 lens, which is really the biggest selling point of this camera. If you want a compact megazoom, well, you're comparing apples and oranges.
Thank you for clarifying, but you're comparing a pocket size point and shoot with a very fast /1.8 lens to compact megazoom that's over twice as big, definitely not pocket-sized, with a lens that's two stops slower (but has much greater zoom capability). The Nikon L820 is fine camera, but you're comparing apples and oranges. These are two different categories of camera each with their own strengths and weaknesses. Someone in the market for a camera like the P310 is not considering the L820 and vice versa.
