    What zoom to fn? Do you mean digital zoom? Or screen magnification?

    hi the clear image zoom digital zoom

    if i use the power zoom lens with clear image zoom turned on it does it automatically but if i fit the 55-210 lens i have to go into the main camera menu and then use the scroll wheel to zoom

    i was hoping to set the function button to go into the zoom mode

    I don't have a newer NEX body, so I can't answer that definitely - just look into the settings menu if you can set it somewhere you want.

    But - and that's just from somebody who wants to get every bit of quality possible - you should either shoot RAW + JPEG (where the uncropped image should be saved as a RAW file) or simply avoid using digital zoom at all. No matter which algorithms are used in the clear image zoom, a PC or Mac can do it better. Cropping is fast in post processing, but you can't get the original file back when doing it in camera, and you'll loose quality that way.
