Does the Viewfield Angle setting exist in ArcGIS Pro?


I have created an idea for this in ArcGIS Ideas here:

Add Viewfield Angle parameter and View Settings window to ArcGIS Pro (ArcMap Equivalency) 


In ArcScene and ArcGlobe there is a wonderful setting called Viewfield Angle that lets you adjust the angle of view of the virtual camera.  This is like zooming on a real camera where the camera stays in one place and the zoom lens changes the field of view by changing the angle of view.

This is NOT the same as zoom in ArcMap or Pro, which only moves the virtual camera forward and backward, but doesn't change the angle of view.


This is also not the same as direction of view which only changes the direction that the virtual camera is pointing.
