I am thinking this one. LR corrects the distortion pretty well, and on an A7r it could be used as a 14mm FF, and 21mm (equiv) on an APS-C crop, effectively covering most of the ultrawide range.

It's been tested on FF and APS-C on DXO and is rated very highly on both formats.

The issues for me are the weight (like you) and also the upcoming wide angle zoom that's on the roadmap for this year, which could be a more versatile option.
