I've been lurking forever on Dpreview and this issue finally compelled me to register so that I could chime in.  Just got my NEX-6 with the 16-50 and I was looking forward to just taking photos rather than pixel-peeping to resolve issues.  Alas, mine also has the dreaded back focus issue.  50 mm is where the issue crops up for me; at 16 mm the focus is spot-on with PDAF.  So, I'll have to contact support; I really don't want to return it as my opinion of the kit lens is actually positive when it focuses correctly!

On a more positive note, my fotodiox OM adapters came this morning; now I can use my dad's old OM lenses. What a difference with the 50mm f1.8 and 24mm f2!  It is really cool to be able to use all that old glass all over again and the IQ is phenominal!
