But a motorized zoom... on a mirrorless ILC? There's no 'zoom button' on the NEX body, and having it use the dial would interfere with the menu/settings options.

It seems highly unlikely IMHO. The kit lens in manual zoom, and so is ever other variable focal length E-Mount lens.

There's a company down the road called Panasonic. You might have heard of them. They had the nerve to produce a pancake lens with powerzoom even though none of their bodies had a zoom control. Incredible, isn't it? You see, they probably came up with powerzoom because it's really freaking hard to manually zoom and focus a lens that is no longer than the width of your finger.
