Sigma sells a 120-400 zoom for Alpha mount with OS, but it's the non-telescoping type so it's very large even when it's not zoomed.

Maybe I'm missreading you, but I have that lens and it telescopes as you go from 120 to 400.

I didn't know that.  It must not telescope very far--looks like it's about 300mm long even at 120mm.

I'm thinking about the m43 300mm zooms which look about half the size, but it should be possible to make a 400mm zoom in APS-C that's only about 33% longer.
