iPhone 15 Pro Max: Potential problems and concerns

Introducing a zoom gapThe telephoto in the iPhone 15 Pro Max is now 5x rather than 3x, thanks to a tetra-prism system and 3-axis sensor shift stabilisation. Which sounds 'better', and will be for snapping birds at the end of the garden. But I'm pretty sure there will be a zoom gap, so 3x and 4x zoom shots will be all digital, and thus significantly worse than on the previous 14 Pro and 14 Pro Max. I've ranted about this before, but 99% of shots you take in real life will be zoomed less than 5x. Look back in your own photo library. For me, it's 75% 1x, 20% 2x (easy on the 48MP iPhones, of course, with lossless 2x smart crops), and then 5% zoomed shots, typically 3x but occasionally digitally zoomed further, to 4x, for more pleasing framing.
(The standard 15 Pro stays with the 3x telephoto, which is a good call, I contend.)
