Fast zoom? Unlock the gear, grab hold of the zoom handle and zoom it by hand.

Actually, I believe that there is a small screw behind the front of the hand grip little rubber cap that adjusts the speed. You may want to read the lens manual...I recall reading about it somewhere but didn't feel that I need to adjust it on my camera.

The screw labeled "S" behind the cap is for iris speed.

More precisely, it controls how much the iris feathers itself from one place to the next when on auto.
