Anyone with a K-01 used it with a FA 28-80 (3.5-4.7)

I'm trying to figure out whether to keep the above lens for video use. Does the Power Zoom work? And if so how do you like it? Do you prefer it to something like the kit zoom DAL18-55?
I will have a Sigma 17-70 but non HSM/screw drive focusing model, its not that noisy but the 28-80 has smooth zoom, lighter build and smaller front element aswell as well as freeing up the Sigma.
