Does Sony's "clear zoom" work with non-Sony lenses? Or with the LA-EA2 + A-mount?

But how does the camera know to "go into" clear zoom mode?

On my Sony 16-50 kit lens, clear zoom starts, of course, at the end of the optical zoom range by continuing to turn the zoom ring.

If a lens has no electrical connection to the camera, how does the camera know to "go into" clear zoom as the camera has no idea what zoom setting I am using, and much less that I have reached max zoom and want to zoom in further.

When clear zoom is enabled, the camera enters clear zoom mode when you get to the long end of the zoom range of the lens.
