If you want really small, light, and excellent image quality consider manual focus Zeiss Loxia lenses 21mm, 50mm, and 85mm, or Voigtlander 21mm, 35mm, and 65mm. These are excellent lenses for landscape. Fast moving subjects are out but light and excellent lenses. The Voigtlander APO lense have no noticeable CA. Both brands have nice rendering.

Would NOT even cosider manual focus lenses with an auto exposure and auto focus centric camera like the A7c (lock the AF point on the locus of interest and go ahead).

If AF is a must Sony 20mm f1.8 is excellent. Sony 55mm f1.8, and Sony 85mm F1.8. If these are too large Tamron makes some F2.8 lenses and there is Samyang as well.

Find the 28-60 kit lens pretty interesting, compact, compact, compact.

Brian Smith has a web page that provides a nice list of lenses.
