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

I agree...I am just trying to understand the limits of the various "features" of the Nex-6, and how they might affect a purchase decision...in this case, a telephoto/zoom lens.

Thanks.

My point is, if you shoot RAW, the clear zoom is irrelevant in your decision.  The optical sharpness is more important.  If you go for the a6000, I think the 55-210 will still have enough optical sharpness at F/7.1 or F/8 to really have about 25% more reach with the higher pixel count.  The 18-200 might not be as sharp (just guessing--I don't know.)
