Check out this video , when you use  the 4K HQ FOV 55 degree  setting vs  to the 4K Full FOV 75 degree setting it gives you a zoomed picture.

Yes as someone else worked out you get roughly a 40mm FOV.
Might be handy for video, no use for stills, its no different to cropping an image on that.
You also wont get the perspective compression a real, increased focal length gives.

I knew this already and like the option. In the video above this could have been explained and demonstrated with significantly less talking and face showing. But I fear doing so would have jeopardised the true purpose the video has been made for ;-)

Most people seem to make videos where a simple webpage or blog entry would be more concise and more accurate (and a lot easier for people to click through and read).
....but that wont make them money.

That would be great to be able to toggle it I wonder if  that could happen in a firmware update ?

They use the extra resolution from the sensor to crop the view.
Panasonic did that on my wife's first compact camera.
It does hurt the video quality a little, but it is better than plain digital zoom.

Yeah their is the same possibility with the Sony A7III and A7RIII. Look at the second part of this video :
Maybe in a future firmware DJI will add the possibility to zoom between the 2 focal length of the M2P while filming...

DJI won't give that to Mavic 2 pro because it would be like taking away an important feature from the Mavic 2 zoom. I believe the Mavic 2 pro doesn't have a digital zoom either. I wish DJI would have just come out with one Mavic 2 pro that has all that we want. Even if we pay a bit more it would be an incredible seller.
