Need help deciding new setup for my NEX

I'm on a tight budget... very tight budget. I'm looking for a new setup for my travel camera.

Right now i'm using NEX-7 + LAEA4 + SAL1118 + HVL-20AM for me and a NEX3 + SEL16F28 for my wife (i'm forcing my wife to use it instead of her phone camera LoL)

But at times i really struggling on a low light situation, especially when i'm going for a winter vacation and i found myself using my wife's camera a lot more because it has a faster lens.

Because both of the cameras do not have IS and early mirrorless Sony has crappy ISO, you cant really push it up beyond 6400, (for my taste at least) and cant go slower than 1/125 shutter speed without getting any image shake, so I decided it's time to get a new lens.

So here's my dilemma

Its either i get a Sigma 16mm F1.4 or another Pancake lens SEL16F28 + VCL-ECU2. FYI both will cost about the same where i come from. Sony 10-18mm F4 OSS is also on my radar but i really don't need that zoom function and a bit more pricey compare to the other two.

Just to point out that i'm not a pro, i don't zoom my pictures to look for the tiniest imperfections. and not spending any money on a new body anytime soon.

I just like pretty pictures   . And really love ultra wide pictures.

Thanks
