If you don't mind the cost, you might want to consider getting the Metabones Speed Booster, and get a Canon copy of the Tokina lens. You end up with a true full frame 11-16mm f2 from the stop increase. I have the 10-18, and really love it - the stabilization is great and I use this for a lot of photo and video work as well. I use my Voigt 15mm for serious landscape work, but the 10-18 is very close.

And now as I type this, it would be pretty amazing to have an f2.0 full frame 11-16mm on my Nex. Was waiting for the FD version of the Speed Booster but might just get the current EF...

The Tokina is a DX lens and would not work well on the Speed Booster.
