Thanks all for the discussion (P.S. I bought the SEL16mmf2.8)

Thanks for the spirited discussion.

From what I've read, yes, Sony can possibly make some better pancakes, but the current one isn't quite as terrible as I've heard.

Either way, the current pancake (16mmf2.8) is the only choice right now if one wishes to walkaround with the NEX as small and light as possible. So, I bought one. I like 24mm (3mm equiv) FOV, so hopefully this lens will be fun for me.

We shall see. If not, I will just resell it some day.
