Sony was able to make a decent 18-200mm lens for their NEX system. It's not very small, but Sony showed that it can be made.
thats the thing , of course 'it can be made' . heck if small is not a requirement i bet Canon could make a steller 18-200 just like they make the best superzoom for the EF mount in the 28-300L
I just had a look at that Nex 18-200 on photozone , and really cant see the point in sticking that on a small body like the nex , it just looks unbalanced to carry around . but then ive seen many 'dads out with family' walking around with a rebel class body and a superzoom from Sigma/Tamron (ie 18-270) as well and that does not look comfortable to carry around either .
really for me if these mirrorless bodies are to have any real effect on keeping the overal size nice and small then the lenses need to to be clever like the panasonic that collapses really small when not in use .
