    It will be a long time before you can get zoom on a P3 sized drone.
    There are a lot of weight and technical issues.
    If you must have zoom, at the moment you have to look at the Inspire + X5 camera - mucho $$ and mucho drone.

    Digital zoom is probably the best we'll get on these sized drones, but at 4K ... that isn't too bad IMHO.

    Sounds like you're thinking of the guy that replaced his lens with a very short telephoto - but not a zoom lens.
    He had a photoshopped image of a P3 carrying what looked like a scaled down 500mm SLR lens on his youtube
