The upcoming (rumored) SEL 16-50 "pancake zoom" should fix that. Hopefully it's an optically good performer as well.

But it won't be an f2.8 lens.

OT:

I have an LA-EA2 with the SAL 50mm f1.8 (previously a Minolta f1.7) and a huge tamron 70-300, and it has served me quite well in the very short time (about a month) I got it. Quite a big improvement from the NEX-3 contrast-detection AF!

Great point. I use the SAL1650 with the LA-EA2 on my Nex-7 for nature photography (so stabilization is not an issue) and I love the combination in low light. This lens is sharp and the weight doesn't bother me at all. Here are some pics I posted recently of a slot canyon as examples:
