Has anyone actually measured the focal length? It could be 16mm including the black corners and 17 or 18 mm corrected for example.

My issue is other software corrected lenses I have used actually have good corner performance before corrections. The issue is Sony isn't making the image circle large enough so they can make it 16mm. It should really be called an 18 or 20 to 50mm lens.


various users did some serious tests: the wide angle focal lengh of the 16-50PZ is in fact around 14mm.... once software corrected, this give a real 16mm! that's why Sony sells this lense as a 16-50mm!
