Tokina makes an 11-16mm f/2.8 zoom for Canon and Nikon APS-C DSLRs.

Perhaps they should make a version of this for the NEX and EOS-M cameras - though it would be quite big.

It should be smaller with the smaller required distance from the back of the lens to the sensor. It won't need to be quite so retro-focal. However, based on Sony's bizarre 24mm f/1.8 prime for the NEX cameras, the lens designers might choose to ignore that fact.
