Sigma makes optically excellent 19mm & 30mm lenses for E-mount @ $200 each, thereby proving that good lenses for mirrorless bodies do not have to be either expensive, large, or heavy.

You forgot about fast too. None have to be fast.

and again, none of the are, none are optically "excellent" (by my standards, I don't think any are capable of moire, which while undesirable shows the optics outsolve the sensor), and none are pancakes.

I don't dislike the Sigmas, they're a fair compromise, but suggesting they're a golden measure is ridiculous.
