Clear Image Zoom with lenses other than 16-50

I found this old thread because I thought CIZ wasn't working with my NEX6 and Sony 18-200 LE, so wanted to chip in to say thanks and clarify one thing for others who get here for the same reason.

With the 16-50 the little zoom bar shows clearly what is happening when you zoom, when you transition to CIZ and Digital Zoom if you have it turned on.

The zoom bar does not appear with other lenses. As lowincash says, CIZ is only accessed by Menu->Camera->zoom which produces a screen where you can dial in a zoom factor with the rear control dial.

Much less convenient than the 16-50, but there and working.

I have to say as one who has always despised Digital Zoom, I am impressed with CIZ and will definitely leave it turned on.

Interesting, I thought the clear image zoom feature works with any lens? We're talking about that 2X zoom feature found in Camera --> Zoom right? I use this with legacy lenses no problem, wonder how come it won't work with the Tamron
