Android update affecting Camera Zoom

Installing version 2.4.1 resulted in a very hard to handle zoom function. While not working that well in older versions, at least the magnification went relatively smooth - but now when pinching the screen it first doesn’t react and then jumps to a zoom level beyond a resolution to be used well.
An older bug, that I didn’t report but may now add, is that when lifting the fingers after zooming, a new focus point is set where the last contact with a finger was. So when zooming in, the focus point is usually moved away from the center to the side of the screen.

Zoom function was fine, but when updating Seek I get now this:
