video showing weirdly fast zooming in Pentax K-r which feature is it?

Just saw this video of amazing fast zoom in Pentax K-r, never seen such a thing before

Is it motorized zooming? is it digital zooming?? if it's digital zooming then what is the sound it's making, what feature is it.

the second hand seems to be stationary, and zooming is very uniform, so doubt that he's zooming by hand.

Is it available in latest Pentax offerings Like K-S2 and K-3, K-3 II??

I've asked the same question in YouTube comments.

That's a digital quick zoom which is used for focusing on details during live view (notice it jumps in, then acquires focus). The sound you hear is the screwdrive focus motor.

Thanks for the quick reply.
okay so u mean there is no optical zooming involved here right.
It looked so natural just like optical zoom
I'm assuming K-S2 has the same feature then.

No optical zooming, just magnification of the sensor output. I haven't used a K-S2, so I can't comment on whether it has that feature or not.
