Zoom & Manual Focus Ring Issues on FZ1000

This YouTube video review was quite critical of the lens mounted zoom & focus rings.

I realize this was discussed about 15 months ago here, but I'm wondering if Panny has made corrections/improvements to more recent models.  So, do people who bought in the last 4-5 months still see these problems?

I have a FZ50 I think is dying and I keep holding on to it because of these rings that are great, thus they are on of the things that make the FZ1000 appealing to me. I absolutely detest the auto zoom levers I have to go back and fourth, back and fourth to get to the correct zoom.

Also, it seems like I read somewhere the zoom ring doesn't go the full range of 25-400. Is that so?
