Also there are compromises with the NEX mount

I have been reading the Lens reviews at Photozone and the performance of the SONY lenses leaves something to be desired... In particular edge and boarder performance.

"The Sony E 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 OSS may perform decently on lower resolution NEX cameras (the 3 and 5 series). However, its capabilities are clearly overstrained on Sony's 24 megapixel sensor. In so far it is very surprising that Sony is also offering it bundled with the NEX 7. "

regarding the 16mm pancake:

"However, it seems rather pointless to use it on the NEX 7 - 24 megapixel are way beyond the capabilities of this tiny lens. The center quality is certainly fine but the outer image region is extremely soft at max. aperture and just barely acceptable around f/8. The native vignetting characteristic of the lens is dismal and you should always activate the auto-correction in the camera to reduce the effect."

Photozone in other areas has stated that the shorter lens distance combined with higher Mpixels has compromised the IQ of this system.

I think DPREVIEW Should take this into account.
A picture is worth a thousand words but talk is cheap.
