Difficult question. I would buy a sony 20, sony 50 (portraits, it could be a legacy lens), and something 12 mm (it could be the sony 16 plus the ultrawide, for architecture).

Sony 20 would be redundant to me as I have the Fuji X100 at 23mm which is hard to beat IMO. I don't really like 50mm as much as I like the 35mm view. On the ultrawide, I don't hear great things about the 16mm pancake (relative to the kit lens), not sure how it holds up with the ultrawide adapter. I do agree that I should get something around 12mm eventually. Not sure if there is a suitable legacy lens solution for this? Manual focus would not be an issue with landscapes where one might focus out to infinity anyway if there is no foreground object/person to be focused on.
