You can preorder the 20mm f/1.8 that just got announced. Think it starts shipping March 6.
Currently my wide for the Sony is 85mm.

Wait, wide is 70 now. FedEx just dropped off my new70-200GM.

Wow, looking at that list Sony has the wide end really covered! I used to own the 16-35mm f4 and liked the lens, but I got a good deal on a minty used Nikon 16-35mm VR, which I prefer due to the fixed barrel length. The Sony version has an extending barrel that I just didn't like. Currently I have the Samyang 18mm 2.8 AF. I bought it because it's the most compact and lightest AF prime for any system. I have some images I shot in this gallery if you're interested:
