One short answer is that you can't have it all in one package at a cheap price. The best compromise at present is the Sony 16-50mm & to shoot in RAW.

I guess it's the SAL 16-50 f/2.8 that quezra also recommended? That seems to be a very reasonable recommendation that probably most closely matches a compromise of low-light capability, zoom and size. I will need to see it attached to my NEX 5N in real life and how it feels in my hands. If it feels like I can work with it, this will be my new walkaround "always attached" lens.
