I've added this to default.xml, which partially works to remove the zoom feature
<head> <remove src="Magento_Catalog::js/jquery.zoom.min.js" /> </head>
However, a magnifying glass still appears above the product image on the product detail page.
I've noticed sections in view.xml, specifically vendor/magento/theme-frontend-blank/etc/view.xml which parameterize a magnifier, one of these seems to toggle it on or off -
<var name="magnifier"> <var name="enabled">false</var> <!-- Turn on/off magnifier (true/false) --> </var>
This is set to false in my theme's view.xml file as well. Any idea what else I need to do to completely remove the magnification / zoom feature in Magento2?
