Current/Future wide-angle options for NEX besides 16-mm pancake?
Sep 9, 2011

I wonder how long we'll have to wait for the equivalent of the m.zuiko 12 mm prime that Oly came out with recently. It's $800. And I'm guessing it will cost even more than that. It looks like there is a wide-angle zoom in the works for 2012, but my guess is the quality/speed of that lens won't be that great compared to a prime.

I'm a little bit afraid this is going to be the limiting factor for the NEX system for a while. While other lenses can be used with an adapter on the NEX pretty easily, the extreme perspective of fisheye lenses are not going to give the equivalent of a 24-mm equivalent lens.

Are you concerned about the limited wide-angle options now? Is there some obvious solution that I have overlooked? Thoughts appreciated.
