The optical zoom of a camera is a measure of how much the camera can zoom in to the subject using the camera's lens system. An optical zoom is superior to a digital zoom because the zoom is achieved using the optics of lens which means that the full extent of the digital sensor is always used to capture the image.

A larger optical zoom allows you to zoom in on the subject without having to move closer. Compared to a digital zoom, using an optical zoom does not result in a loss of image quality.

A lot longer maximum focal length (35mm film equiv) Edit
The Sony DSC-RX10M II has a maximum focal length (35mm film equiv) of 460mm, however the Lytro Illum is only a 250mm maximum focal length digital camera (210mm shorter).
6mm shorter minimum focal length (35mm film equiv) Edit
The Sony DSC-RX10M II is a 24mm minimum focal length digital camera. That's 6mm shorter than the Lytro Illum (24mm).
88% higher ISO sensitivity (max) Edit
