Good Zoom Lens for Sony NEX-5A

I bought myself a Sony NEX-5a from Dell a couple months ago and while I like the camera I am kind of a noob when it comes to photography. It came with a 16mm lens that does not zoom, I think its a wide angle lens but I'm not sure. (I think the lack of zoom is inherent in the name as well but it beats me)

Anyway I'd like to pick up a decent zoom lens on Boxing Day or thereabouts if its a good price. I know Sony uses a "E-mount" system but I'm not sure if that means it is only compatible with its own e mount branded lens.

I think this is a decent lens that fits my needs *Click Here* - Any see this lens going on sale boxing day? Any other ideas for a good zoom lens that's going on sale?

I think Blacks is doing $100 bucks off all lens but I'm guessing Amazons regular price of $299.00 will be about the same as the typically over priced Blacks... maybe I'm wrong though. I don't see that lens on their website either way...

I live in Calgary.
