Has Sony worked out the Sticky Zoom on PMW-200?

I had an EX1 that zoomed perfectly at slow/crawl speeds.
Sold it to move up to EX1r with sticky, jerky zoom that Sony "fixed" by blocking speeds below 8. Grrr.
Thinking of moving to PMW-200, but don't want another "That's how they are supposed to work" sticky lens.

The zoom motor on my PMW200 seems significantly smoother/better than any of the EX3's I've shot with. I also use it with a Bebob/Zoe controller

Re: Has Sony worked out the Sticky Zoom on PMW-200?

Thanks for the response. Does the PMW-200 lens ramp into and go smoothly to a zoom start and stop? Does it hold steady on ultra slow zoom?

I have a Libec ZC-9EX and a Varizoom Pro, with a max speed control dial.
They work perfectly with my broadcast lenses and were great with my EX1 for very slow zooms.
Can't get slow, steady zooms with the EX1r.
