Right, proving my point that none of the big boys have much in the way of zooms wider than 14mm either, so to call Sony pathetic in this range is a little dramatic. In my opinion software has reduced (not eliminated) the need for ultra wide lenses, and I think the fact that there aren't dozens of lenses to choose from in this range supports that opinion. Do the math: Microsoft ICE is free versus it's not possible to manufacture a decent wide zoom for under $800 and you see where the market is going, and personally, I'd rather take 10 shots with a distortion-free 20-24mm lens and stitch them together than lug around a 2 pound ultra-wide zoom.
