The box claims a 4X digital zoom* is available, but this is a little misleading - the zoom is only available at certain camera settings. At maximum (normal and extended) resolution, there is no zoom function. At medium size (320x240) there is a 2X zoom, and right down at 160x120, the 4X zoom is finally selectable. However, this isn't actually a zoom, it's more a pre-cropping feature. Bad Sony Ericsson, leading us on like that.

These images are various levels of zoom at both 320x240 and 160x120. Note the underexposure at maximum zoon - the area being photographed was considerably darker than the ambient light. I've heard that the upcoming S700 has a better exposure calculation system (spot metering in a phone!), but the k700 is showing it's limits here. There is a white balance/exposureish adjustment, some shots of that to come later.
