Touit is an interesting lens, but even at the 'reduced' US price (not reduced in Europe) it's still a bit pricey - particularly considering the uncertainty over the future direction of APS-C E-mount bodies

Wish there was something similar at an 'in-between' price. Same applies to the 16-70/4 zoom lens

Personally, I'm wondering whether the SEL20F28 + UWA might be a good "in between" option. The SEL20 seems to be a much better lens.

My only reluctance is that I don't think the SEL20 was specifically designed to work with the UWA, and -- while it does -- I'm not clear on whether there are significant compromises in sharpness and performance. Certainly I've seen examples of the SEL20+UWA that seem promising...
