Good glass is not always enormous. The best lens I have, the Contax G 45mm is only 200g or so. It's fast lenses that are typically heavy.

Personally I like to have options available for both. I think it's reasonable to expect that the lenses that will be released for the NEX system will be smaller and slower than their DSLR counterparts.

The big fast lenses for the system have already been made and are available on the A-mount through the LA-EA2 adapter. I don't see Sony producing the big stuff natively for the NEX, as most people do not want lenses this size, and they'd duplicate the DSLR lenses.
