I normally shoot with a Sony a850 and a (heavy) bag of lenses and would like a LIGHT camera-lens combination to compliment my other gear. I spend a lot of time on the forums on Dpreview, but not specifically here on the NEX, so bare with me if this is a much discussed topic.

My walk-around lens on the a850 is the wonderful old Minolta 28-135 f4.0-4.5.

Not very high demands - you should get good results with E35/1.8 and E50/1.8, but loose zoom.

Realize that the crop ratio changes your 28-135 to 18-90 on APS-C. The 1855 kit zoom gives you most of that range, but f/3.5-f/5.6 is slightly different (ok for exposure, different DOF).

Think you mean 42-202mm on APS-C.
