Manual vs Power Zoom

For lenses for a micro 4/3 camera, looking at a manual vs power zoom for taking video, is it difficult to zoom in manually?

Also, with a power lens with internal zoom (like the Panasonic 45-175mm), is the lack of sucking in dust or dirt a key factor, or does that rarely happen?

Thanks.
