Can anyone tell me what the ratio is on the HVX lens. 11:1, 18:1, ??? And how do you figure this out? I should know this but I don't. Panasonic says its an 13x lens, does that mean its 13:1? I need to know for sure, please don't respond if your guessing.

thanks,
matt

Yes, 13x is the same as saying a 13:1. Check this link.

You divide the longest focal length (55mm) by the shortest (4.2mm) and this gives you the zoom ratio: 13x or 13 to 1 or 13:1.
