Would like to hear from those who own the NEX6 with 16-50mm and 55-210mm Lens Bundle regarding what you think of it, particularly the two lenses.

The 16-50 is a very sharp lens in my experience except the edges are a bit soft at F/3.5 at 16mm (the real problem is the focal plane is curved--so if the focus point is near an edge, that edge will be sharp. Consequently it's never a real problem for me since for shots like that, the other edge of the lens is aimed at the background.

The 55-210 is okay--comparable to similar price and range lenses from Nikon or Pentax when wide open. Stopped down to F/7.1 or so, it's very sharp--much more than my Pentax low end zooms. I'm on my second copy of this lens--the first one I bought was pretty poor wide open. I've also seen samples posted by others that didn't look so hot to me, so you might want to test it out when you first get it.
