Panasonic GH2 - digital zoom on/off during video?

I'm interested in purchasing the GH2 and am curious how the digital zoom feature works for video. Is it possible to turn digital zoom on/off during video, or is it a feature that can only be turned on/off while video is not being taken. My preference is to not use digital zoom during video, but if a circumstance arises where I immediately need it, it would be useful to simply press a button (or two) during video capture to turn it on and off. Is this possible on the GH2?

I aware of the problems associated with zooming during video, both optical and digital, but feel this option could come in handy in certain situations.

Thanks in advance!
