I doubt the zoom ring on A mount lenses will control CIZ, unless they're power zooms like the 16-50mm. The 18-55mm's zoom ring certainly won't control CIZ, being a mechanical zoom rather than a power zoom.

Yes, if it's a mechanical zoom, with a hard stop, it obviously won't control any of the digital zooms. The rear dial will be needed for that.
