Are telephotos and zooms the same?
A zoom is a lens with a range of focal lengths. It could be a "Wide angle" zoom eg 14-24, a "Standard" zoom eg 24-70, or a "Telephoto" zoom eg 70-200.
A telephoto lens is a "Fixed focal length" lens, ie it only has one focal length eg 200mm.
With a "Zoom" lens you can zoom in and out of the frame, be it wide angle, standard or telephoto. With a fixed focal length lens you can't. (Unless you use your legs!).
