Diminishing advantage. Given the size and weight of such lenses, it makes little to no sense. A camera like NEX is about rangefinder form. And I don't recall RF cameras venturing into long focal lengths. In fact the standard trio used to be 28, 50, 90, which in APS-C terms today would be 18mm, 35mm and 60mm (a range covered by kit zoom lenses).

There's a fair few 135mm rangefinder lenses.

One of the main reasons why RF lenses rarely venture beyond 135mm, however, is the difficulty in framing and focusing them accurately with an RF body, which is not an issue with NEX.
