Can a NEX 6 give me equal IQ to a Nikon D7000 for landscape photography?

I love the IQ of my Nikon D7000 for landscape photography, but I am considering buying the NEX 6 as a smaller and lighter alternative since (AFAIK), it shares the same excellent 16MP Sony sensor as the D7000.  However, I have two concerns.

  1. Will the short flange distance on the E mount make edge to edge sharpness impossible even with an excellent wide angle lens?
  2. Is there an excellent wide angle lens currently available for the E mount? 

As a benchmark, this is the kind of IQ I would want from a NEX 6 for landscape photography.

Or am I expecting too much from the NEX 6? I  would appreciate any reasoned responses that will help me with my buying decision.
