Maybe I'm just cynical or slighly gutted as I like my nex 5n , quite fancied a 16-50mm and wasn't really planning on upgrading it. Now I'm even considering another manufacturer, before I spend any more money on Nex.

I think the 16-50 should not be considered as an upgrade for existing NEX users.

Maybe you dream for smaller lens (but as i just wrote, this is not suprising this would force you to accept some compromise), but you already bought a NEX. this mean the existing lense size is probably acceptable for you.

I think the 16-50PZ is aimed at bring to NEX some customers that would not have bought a NEX with the former "big" lenses, like me. The ones for who the 18-55mm size is just totaly unaceptable, because your camera would not fit in a (even big) pocket. those customer would more easily accept an "unperfect" image quality, as long as the result remain better than with a small sensor compact camera, even not on par with the best APS-C competitors.
