I'm only seeing an improvement in the extreme corners which most people don't care much about, depending on subject. Still, it's a zoom compared to a prime. And it's a swa zoom so considering that, it's a nice lens I guess. I won't be buying one.

You didn't notice the hugely superior performance on the edges too?  It's not just the extreme corners.

Even stopped down, the 16mm can't compete with the 10-18mm.
