Updated lens wish list after a few replies from various places.

1) tamron 18-270mm pzd (£500, only 450g)
2) tamron 17-50mm f2.8 (£340)
3) maybe tamron 90mm f2.8 Macro (£350)
4) sony 50mm f1.8

to 4) --> (£200)?

Plus the aXX body ..(£700+), you are in for (£2,090).

I'd recommend the SEL18200 (£700) and an adapter (£35) to pick up a few legacy lenses (1.4/1.7 prime £35 and 2.8 wide £35). This only sets you back (£805).

You can always add a new NEX body (C3, 7) and one or more of the announced lenses for the (£1,285) that you save.

Or surprise the family with a nice getaway.

will any of these options allow me to focus faster on action?

If you can convince me that the nex plus e mount 18-200 will focus as fast as a a55 plus the 18-270 pzd then that would sway my decision. I have a strong feeling that it wont be very close though
