The Alpha 55-200 works well. If the Nex version is at least as good, that'll be good enough for me. This and the 18-55 make a nice pair. Not quite as convenient as a one-lens solution, but you don't always need to carry both. (Sometimes you only need a 55-200. But seriously, a 2 lens solution is adequate.

Would I be able to get focus at sports events such as football (soccer) and indoor ulitmate frisbee events with it though? I have had real trouble using the 18-55 in those situations and although I dont mind going to manual focus and pre focusing in some occasions, I would like faster autofocus to try and catch more of the action.

I took 100s of pics at the last indoor ultimate tournament I went to, and this was the only pic that i was satisfied with.
