My only concern is the length of the 55-210mm lens is quite big compared to the small nimble body. Just wondering if that would be a downside to it.

If I go for either the G3 or NEX-5N cameras, I'll go for the twin lens 18-55 and 55-210 kit, as well as a filter for the lenses and a good bag too.
That should be a great kit. Just make sure that you put your left hand under the lens to hold it, no matter which lens you're using. Get the optional electric viewfinder so that you don't look like a doofus, holding the camera out in front of you.

Based on the reviews, the Sony looks like the best EVIL camera out there. I'm looking forward to seeing your results.
