It can't do it all.

It can do pretty much anything a comparable DSLR/DSLT can. However, it will be a tall order to reverse that.

It cannot shoot BIF or sports very well.

Well, if you cannot, but I can, then it isn't the tool that is the problem. Although, I don't shoot BIF and Sports regularly. But I know, anytime I want to, I can as these test shots should tell you, and those are with the most basic and the very first of NEX-series (NEX-3):

Auto Focus

Manual Focus

No long zooms available.

Non-issue to me. It is extremely rare for me to feel the need for anything past 135mm (200mm equivalent). In some of these cases above, are the few moments I go to 200mm or better.

Of course, a superzoom like FZ-200 or Sx50 could do it all too. Could do more.

Let me see it.

Sony lenses for the NEx cannot do what DSLR lenses can in that department. Samsung and m43s have better IQ in general, a lot better and m43s has a much longer focal length. But even these are not where DSLR systems are yet.

Sony NEX can do more than a comparable DSLR can. To repeat, I can if I were to carry just one camera today, for its versatility, Sony NEX-6 would be my pick. Not any comparable DSLR, not any DSLT. And forget m4/3 and lesser cameras.
