In short, there is no long telephoto, zoom or otherwise, that can be used with the NEX series without using a tripod virtually under all circumstances. The A57 is a nice camera by the way. Not too heavy for its type.

Wrong, there are the sigma os lenses which have a great is system integrated. Check this video with the sigma 17-70/2.8 with and without the is system (you hear a click when he turns it on and you see the image stabilized) . Actually I'm planning to use the la-ea2 with the sigma 18-250 os hsm. And btw, size-wise, the la-ea2+amount lens combo don't add much more bulk than the sel 18-200, plus you get the pdaf autofocus from the adapter. Basically if you choose to use a big zoom bulk is to be expected, native lens or otherwise. If you plan on having a big rage zoom attached on the nex-5/3/n etc all the time, i think you are better off with an SLT series model.

I agree about the A57, played with it at a store and liked it for it's versatillity and quite small size compared to the competition.
