If the 16-50 and 50-135 are IZ, then I'm 99% sure the 60-250 will be as well.

That, however, means that the 60-250 will be BIG!

DA*16-50 (I don't know about the 50-135 since I don't have it) is by no means IZ. The lens is at its "nominal" lenght @ 16 mm (about 100 mm) and expands by some 35 mm @ 50 mm. See here the Tokina cousin for exemplification: Tokina AF 16-50mm f/2.8 AT-X Pro DX (Nikon) - Lens Test Report / Review
It is however IF.

Woopsy. My bad, there.

We might be in for a nifty canon lens (no not the brand).

Let's hope it does have internal zoom.

The prototypes I have seen (pictures and under glass at a photo exhibition) were IZ for sure.

The DA*60-250 is almost as long and a bit bigger as the DA*300f4 from what I have seen.
