Did you notice the cheapest bundles of NEX-3,5 & 3C? They seem to carry a very decent 24mm equivalent extremely compact and relatively fast lens.

The 16mm is an ok lens, but it is really not stellar. The NEX-7 with it's 24MP sensor will need a stellar lens if you want to get the best out of it - hence, I'm sure, the reason for the CZ 24mm.

the much touted weaknesses of the 16mm f2.8 are way overblown IMHO. The lens is suberbly shrp in 98% of the image and is truly a great prime lens.

If you say so. I have the 16mm on my NEX-5 and I would disagree with you on this point. The 16mm is an OK lens, but definately NOT stellar.
