Seeing as they would simply re purpose a NEX targeted UWA APS-C lens, we would be getting a rather oversized yet under-performing optic for the asking price.  The 14/2.5 is already cheap, small, and optically good, and can be stitched easily enough with two quick shots in vertical orientation.

The Sigma lenses perform slightly better on M4/3 compared to a nex.

But I already have a Pany 14mm and I have 12mm covered with the 12-50mm zoom.
