I think Sony has a little trouble to planning small flange distance lenses.

I fail to see the logic of blaming the short flange distance. The Sony E-mount Zeiss is not a small lens, with plenty of room for distance of rear element to sensor. And the flange distance differences between the various mirrorless cameras are rather small in the oveall scheme of things.

You can blame Zeiss/Sony lens design/manufacturing for failing to meet high expectations for a high-priced lens; or you can choose to praise Panasonic's very good 20mm lens for its size and price.
