The Sony is smaller and lighter, which is the point of the NEX system.

The Sony is much cheaper.

The Sony is very sharp. The Zeiss is only sharper if you're pixel peeking.

The Sony has OSS, so is much better for video.

For your intended uses, travel and video, the Sony is a much better lens. The fact that it's much cheaper is just an added benefit.
