Thanks for reply.
In what way was the image quality different ? I would expect a 10x zoom to be deficient in some areas compared to a 3x zoom. For example I had two 5x Minolta and Sony zooms that were very sharp but had bad distortion at the wide end, one would not focus nearer than 5 ft. and one had bad fringing.
