Android Google Maps v2 - set zoom level for myLocation

Is it possible to change the zoom level for myLocation with the new Google Maps API v2?
If you set GoogleMap.setEnableMyLocation(true); you get a button on the map to find your location. If you click on it, the map will bring you to your location and zoom it in to some level. Can I change this zoom to be less or more?

It's doubtful you can change it on click with the default myLocation Marker. However, if you would like the app to automatically zoom in on your location once it is found, I would check out my answer to this question

Note that the answer I provided does not zoom in, but if you modify the onLocationChanged method to be like the one below, you can choose whatever zoom level you like:

public void onLocationChanged(Location location) 
    if( mListener != null )
        mListener.onLocationChanged( location );

        //Move the camera to the user's location and zoom in!
        mMap.animateCamera(CameraUpdateFactory.newLatLngZoom(new LatLng(location.getLatitude(), location.getLongitude()), 12.0f));
