While I was searching for a new lens on eBay I found a Japanese store selling the Voigtländer 25mm f/0.95 along the MicroFourThirds to NEX adapter. The whole set costs you $1,450.00 which is not so expensive. Click the link to see the auction: Nokton 25mm for NEX. The lens will vignette quite a bit but if you want a better f/0.95 lens the only option is the $10,495.00 cheap Leica 50mm f/0.95 :(
You also check the A580 price and availability at Amazon, B&H, Adorama, eBay.
Reminder: Sony A55 deals at Adorama (Click here). They are offering $100 instant rebates on many A55 double lens kits. If you need more than the kit lens only go for it!
