The 16-80mm on a LA-EA2 is my favorite walk around lens with the NEX-7 except for when it's cloudy or dark or you are shooting into the shade ... because you loose the stabilization. The trade-off is that in anything less than good light you have to remember to manage your shutter speed and ISO to make sure everything is sharp. If I don't know what I'm shooting beforehand, I usually surrender and stick the 18-200mm or the kit lens on. The 18-200mm is really quite reasonable if you are willing to shoot at 800-1600 ISO. It should be for $900

I've gotten so used to shooting with the 28-135 that I make it work.  And when i can't, I do have the the a850 and a bag of lenses.  Heavy but very useful.

I will look into the 16-105 also, i think.
