DJI Mavic 2 Zoom review

The DJI Mavic 2 Zoom is a slightly different take on the high-end consumer drone – rather than the large, one-inch sensor seen on its Mavic 2 Pro sibling, it packs a 2x optical zoom lens.  

This was a pretty novel approach when both drones launched in August 2018 – we’re used to seeing camera manufacturers introduce slightly different variants on the same body design, but this was a new strategy for drones and reflected their growing status as serious photographic tools, rather than just sky-based playthings.

Both the Mavic 2 Zoom and Mavic 2 Pro remain senior figures in DJI’s consumer drone lineup, so what’s the case for buying this optical zoom variant? As its name suggests, this drone features an optical zoom lens with a smaller sensor than the Mavic 2 Pro, but it’s particularly handy for aerial photographers who need to get closer to their subjects than current drone laws allow.
