re: thanks in not too small degree to N7's sensor no doubt :)

Thanks to all who have contributed to this Distagon discussion. The selection of wide angle lenses shown in the input show also one basic problem with our NEX system.

The fact with APS-C sensor unfortunately is that high quality lenses for that form factor are large, heavy, bulky and expensive. We all would like to see tiny pancake lenses like the Sony 16mm f2,8, but at least for now one looses something - i.e. the quality.

I conclude that the Distagon is at present one of the best options for wide angle lenses money can buy. However, if Sony manages to shrink the high quality lens offerings like it has made in regard to the bodies, the mirrorless NEX could one day become more balanced and compact. A small camera body really screams for compact pancake lenses.
