the 16mm lens has a FOV comparable with your Zeiss lens at 24mm on the FF A850.

The 16mm lens is not the best lens for the Nex system. Abetter choice should be the new 20mm pancake lens for when you real want a very small lens. Otherwise the much cheaper Sigma 19mm lens is a very good choice.

The kit lens is not bad at all and a good choice for walk around lens. Maybe not top notch but very good for not to critical picture taking. The 55-210mm lens is more a tele zoom lens, not realy a walkaround lens, and it is large for walkaround lens.

When you want a very good lens, not to big,  the 35mm 1.8 is a good choice. The 50mm and 24mm Zeiss are very good too, but bigger.

When comming from a A850 it might be wise to look at the Nex 6/7 too as it has a build in VF
