You can also go with the Sigma 19 mm F/2.8 and the panasonic wide adapter:

That will give 15 mm, and better quality than the two other options. But there is also an ultra wide sony adapter for the 16 mm F/2.8 that will give 12 mm.The sony 16 mm lens alone is only acceptable when shooting jpeg, since distortion and vignetting, etc. is normally mapped in the Nex, and eliminated (manually shooting raw, using per example DxO).

I also recommend the 16mm + 0.75x UWA (to 12mm).

a link for 0.75x UWA?

Google for Sony VCL-ECU. This is the 12mm ultra wide converter.

The VCL-ECF is the 10mm fisheye converter.

Both snap onto the 16mm using a locking bajonet connection.
