Zooming with the 16-50mm PZ like a normal zoom...

Hi to all!
I've just become a new (and happy) user of the Nex6, with the 16-50mm PZ combo.

Today I noticed that I *can* zoom in and out without using the lever switch, but using the barrel just like a normal zoom lens. My question is: does this force the lens motor in any way? Should I avoid doing so?
