Quick Look in Mountain Lion supports pinch to zoom in or out System 10.8
I deal with a lot of PDF documents and until now was using Lion. I used to Quick Look PDFs all the time, and pinching used to make it full screen. But even in full screen, because most document have a portrait orientation, many times the text wasn't readable enough. Now, pinching in Quick Look, both normally and when full screened, zooms in or out like in Preview. I've tested this only with PDFs. I tried with a JPG, and pinching did nothing to it.

Quick Look in Mountain Lion supports pinch to zoom in or out

Surprisingly it works with QT videos in Quicklook. You can pinch and zoom the video to full screen mimicking cmd-opt-Y.

The behaviour is very inconsistent. Here's what I've observed so far:

1. PDFs: Pinching on content zooms in or out. Pinching on title bar of Quick Look goes full screen.
2. Other document types: Pinching anywhere makes it go full screen. Much like it was in Lion.
3. Images: Pinching on image does absolutely nothing but requires pinching on title bar to go full screen. Weird.
