I agree, the kit lens is just awful. I ended up returning the NEX6 with kit lens and got just the body. After getting the 50mm 1.8 (SEL50F18), it was just no comparison. I actually was dissapointed at first with the NEX6, but then realized that it was the lens. The pictures I took with the 50mm, was just super sharp, colors were vibrant, and videos just were amazing... To get the best out of the NEX6, I definately recommned getting one of the primes to see what the camera is capable. I ended up getting the 35mm 1.8 since the 50mm is a bit tight indoors, so still waiting... I am pretty sure it will deliver...

You missed the entire point of the OP, did you?

The PZ1650 kit lens is limited - JPG is better than RAW, aperture is limited, extreme focal ranges are not superior. But otherwise, it is an impressive little lens, and quite convenient.

Yes, a 50mm at f/1.8 runs circles around it, so what?
