Zip with a list comprehension

This is probably so easy that I'll be embarrassed by the answer.   While 
enhancing and refactoring some old code, I was just changing some map()s to 
list comprehensions, but I couldn't see any easy way to change a zip() to a 
list comprehension.    Should I just let those sleeping dogs lie?   (list 
comprehensions seem more readable than map(), but if the list comprehension 
that does the equivalent of zip() is less expressive than zip(), I'll stick 
with zip()).
