Geez, it's just a lens.
Totally agree. I do sympathize with the idea that it's "big for mirrorless". But most of the fast-ish, pro quality mirrorless telephoto zooms have been fairly "big". All Sony have done here is start with the big, high quality lens instead of first releasing a bunch of slow, oftentimes crummy lenses. M4/3, for example, has a bunch of telephoto zooms you can choose from. Only one of them is any good (the Panny 35-100). It's really offering you a false choice, since if you want a high quality lens you only have one option at this point. There's an Oly zoom coming that looks pretty large, and there's a fast Fuji tele zoom coming that also looks big. If you don't want to buy one of the big lenses, on most of the systems you have the option of buying a lower quality lens. Sony doesn't have that yet, but since they had to start somewhere, I'm glad they started with this.
Like I said before, I literally waited years for Nikon to release a lens like this for FX. Sony have done it in the first six months.
