Thoughts on 20-50 Zoom for E-Mount

I just read about Samsung having one of these on offer for the NX mount and it struck me as interesting. They offer both an 18-55 and a 20-50. The 20-50 is 40%lighter and 40% smaller. It may not have IS but 40% is 40%. Given how much size is a draw to an NEX camera a theoretical 40% reduction in size would interest me greatly and would really shrink an NEX even further. I'd go so far as to say that if the size reduction was the same that i'd go for one of those instead of the 18-55. Obviously this is just theoretical and Sony isn't going to release that type of zoom but does anyone else have thoughts on a slightly less rangy but much smaller zoom?
