My do-it-all lens is Sigma 18-250 HSM OS. Note, that is the now older version as newer version lacks OS and adds “macro” to the label (newer version is slightly smaller). If I were to pick between the new and old again, I would still go for the old especially since it has OS which extends the functionality to NEX body, and having OS and a switch on the lens to turn it off, makes it easier to turn off OS when I don’t want it (switching back and forth between tripod and hand held or shooting action, for example). Not a bad lens for an occasional bird in flight style shooting either...

Sony A55 + Sigma 18-250 HSM OS

IMO, it is an excellent lens to complement with faster primes like 35mm/1.8 (lightweight, fast, cheap, good quality walk around) and you already have 50/1.7.
