RX10 Clear Zoom Experiences

Has anyone had any experience with using the Clear Zoom feature to take photos at 400mm. With the introduction of the Pan FZ1000 with Optical Zoom to 400mm it would seem the Pan FZ1000 tops the RX10 in the zoom capability. However, based on Alexander White's comments in his "Guide To The Sony DSC-RX10" on page 300:

"My preference is to limit the camera to optical zoom and avoid any deterioration. However, many photographers have found that Clear Image Zoom yields surprisingly good results, and it is worth using when you cannot get close enough to your subject"

Clear Zoom might be enough to even the zoom score for some photographers.

Thanks for any input,
