Respectfully, I disagree.

I see such large lenses on a DSLR.

I agree 100%- to me, this is over the top. I own several f2.8 lenses for my D7000, and unless someone revokes the laws of physics, the lens will dwarf the NEX line in size and weight.

Then, what's the point? A DLSR is so much better once you give away the NEX camera size and weight.

To build a lens like this for a tiny market like NEX would mean a selling price of $2500.

Go take a number at the door. A forum full of people with $400-600 camera bodies talking about big zooms.

Right. After you get a date with Heidi Klum.
