    Are there any longer-than-200mm native lenses for the Nex? I was surprise not to find any so far.

    Nope, not yet. Rokinon has announced a 300mm mirror, but as far as I know that's it & it isn't AF.

    Yeah, that's it, I didn't realize it was out already. Mirrors are an acquired taste, one which many photographers never acquire. I view them (particularly this small one) as sort of emergency/limited lenses in the sense that I really might need the reach for a couple of shots but I don't want to haul the big, heavy lens all day for a couple of shots.

    But for now, this lens is it for over 210mm in e mount. Legacy lenses obviously abound. :) 

    **edit to add** Wow, I just looked at the specs for this lens and it's heavier than I would have thought it would be.

    So a better solution would be....non-native lenses?

    With the exception of this mirror lens there are no other options.

    Judging by the size of the 55-210, if Sony were to make anything longer, I can't imagine how large it would be.
