So we are missing the Big Guns (300mm+) but that's about it.

There are new AF lenses by Sigma, Zeiss, Tamron, Samyang, maybe more. There are also adapters available to mount anything on anything (this is true for most manufactures) but you loose AF and AE depending on the setup.

If this list does not satisfy you than you are looking at NikCan or maybe m4/3. The one hole in this lineup is a very fast zoom (24-70 f2.8) but so what? One reason folks buy into the Sony system is for a small footprint. If fast zooms are a requirement why are you looking at mirrorless?

So do you need 20+ Sony lenses? It is rather simple, if you have a very specific requirement that is met by a different system stop flapping your gums on the Sony forum and buy what it is you need.
