I also have an LX3, and a NEX3.

Currently you will not find an LX3 equivalent-quality lens for the NEX system, unless you spend huge $$$$ for the 24/1.8.
My suggestion is to get the 2 Sigma primes for now, plus a NEX5N body.

Then in October Sony will hopefully announce a "NEX F5" with an 18-55 motorized zoom pancake lens.

Hopefully it will be of equivalent excellence to the 2 Panasonic GX-Vario, kit zooms on 2 of Panasonic's high-end m43 cameras.

So after a while you should be able to locate this new NEX zoom kit lens, maybe spun-off from a kit bundle. Or, wait until October.
