How good or bad is the E16-50PZ?
Mar 4, 2013

There is much apprehension about the quality of the 16-50PZ. Sorry, I can't compare with the 18-55, but the 16-50 is certainly more complex to give good results at the wide end. I think the enclosed photo should give a good idea of what it can do. It was taken at 16mm and is an only slightly compressed OOC jpeg taken with a NEX-6.Results become even better above 18-19mm so I don't see a point of comparing with the 18-55. The 18-55 couldn't have given you this shot.

Personally, I am a great fan of the 16-50 (also for the size). Perhaps I am biased, so your opinions would interest me.

Thanks for looking and perhaps for a comment.
