the stellar quality 16mm

where is that stellar quality 16mm?

My favorite lens for FF is 24mm, with nex7 thats around 16mm. Im using the old minolta 24 2.8 and/or the CZ 24-70 2.8 with my alpha 900 as a standard lens for landscape photo, but the huge size and weight made me go for the Nex 7 as a companion at my hikes. So now i got myself a Nex7 and a sony 16mm and a Voigtlander 15mm to go with it.

Size is important, and i love the CV 15mm for its sharpnes, manual focus and small size.

The Sony 16mm is nice, but just not sharp enough, the CV15mm is sharp enough, but with its purple edges its just to much extra work and quite limiting when shoting HDR in jpg.

So I need a 14-16mm wide angle for the nex, manual focus is ok, but I do not want colored corners. Of cause there is the Trielmar 16-18-21, and yes, its all stellar quality, but so are the price...

Any sugestions?

Alternatively: Anyone out there who know how to handle HDR files done with the CV 15mm and JPG files? Oh, and for the record, my shooting habits: I shoot mostly Raw (95%), but sometimes I finde the HDR/jpg function usefull.
