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

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

Menu > Zoom on new UI, Camera > Zoom on previous UI.

Then use the dial to set zoom level (1.0x - 2.0x).

The Zoom menu option is only available for lenses that do not have PZ (power zoom).

The zoom is controlled by settings: Dig on/off, CIZ on/off. If you have only CIZ on, the zoom range will only be 1.0x to 2.0x. (There is no need to use Dig zoom - same as in post).

The Clear Zoom is applied to the image, you'll see it in live view, the camera/lens combination does not matter.

Thanks Henry...that explains it.

P.S.  One remaining question...

If I use an LA-EA2 with an A-mount lens...will the camera AUTOMATICALLY go into clear zoom by continuing to turn the zoom ring (assuming of course the camera is set to do that), just as if I was using an e-mount lens?

I have never owned an A-mount lens...can the zoom ring keep turning past what would normally be the max zoom setting like e-mount lenses?
