RX10 ii Faster Zoom?

I've watched some clips on YouTube of the Sony RX10 ii and it looks like it's got a much faster zoom than the mark 1 when video recording. Can anyone confirm this?

She is talking about making photos while she is zooming so it's not sure if it has the same speed while shooting video.

There's a "Zoom Speed" option in the menu.

You'd think Sony engineers read these forums or something...

Do I get a free RX10M2 for the suggestion?

They do read but they don't listen because otherwise we would have gotten a firmwareupdate on the mark 1, you can bet it is possible but no, Sony wants you to buy the mark 2 instead :)

The rx10 has become my goto camera for a large part of a weddingday, if it wasn't for that damn slow zoom.

Re: RX10 ii Faster Zoom?

I know people inside Sony were also begging for that 4K firmware update... too bad it never happened, but with the new sensor, there are more than a few reasons to consider the upgrade anyway... but I'll be waiting til the price comes down more than a little - my Mark 1's are fine for what I need now...really can't quibble with what they CAN do!
