"Sony E PZ 16-50mm f/3.5-5.6 OSS is not a bad lens. The main reason for which internet pixel-peeper community marked it as failure is wide angle performance. Barrel distortion and light fallof are really bad at 16mm, that’s true. It is best used from 18mm (preferably 20mm) upward. I don’t understand why Sony had to make it a 16mm lens and provoke an avalanche of criticism. It could sell as good as a 18-50mm or 20-50mm lens, and people would not complain about it; most of photographers know it’s hard to make cheap, compact, optically great zoom lens for such a short flange-to-back distance on a large(ish) sensor."
