Check the Sony Alpha forum. Lots of threads about replacing kit lenses. I think Sigma also has a nice altenative (17-50). SRL gear likes it but rates the Sony 16-50 higher.

I use the Sigma 17-50mm on the NEX-7. It's a very nice lens. Sharp very with pleasing bokeh for a zoom. I got a version with OS, and the OS works fine on the NEX. My only criticisms are the size and weight, and the fact that it blocks the built-in flash at the wide end.

How fast does the Sigma focus? I'm also looking for some additional choices.
