If I'm not mistaken Sony has used this technology in Cybershot since 2011

Yes, but Nokia was the first to bring it to a smartphone.

My Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-WX150 has that clear image zoom. It's the only thing I don't like about it. The image quality actually drops kinda lot. But it has 10x optical zoom so it doesn't really matter lol.

pretty useless without steady hands or without using a tripod. when zoomed, the blurring effect of slight movements is amplified. it's better to just take a big photo that makes use of all the MP count of the camera and zoom later on.

Agreed.. That's what I did when I had a 1020.

That's where OIS comes in on the L1020. It takes alot of that shake out of the equation. That being said, I agree that it is better to take the big photo... especially when you consider that the L1020 can save the photos uncompressed.
