There is also an option in the menu (sorry, don't have a camera right now) to switch zoom controls and there is a both option.

Is your camera set to Manual or Servo ?

Or

Go to Camera setup and then SW Mode.

did you accidentally flip the switch on the right side of the handle that controls how the zoom operates?

This actually happend for me.. but it stopped working for almost a month, then started working again. I think it may of been something to do with the speed switch, but I will never know.

Your talking about the handle up top, right? The default setting on speed 2 is no speed - i.e. the zoom does not work on the handle in position 2. Try 1 or 3. It's in the manual.
