My conclusion from looking at the images on my Dell U2410 professional/calibrated monitor: The kit lens is a whole lot better than the technogeeks here love to bash.

And  it is very true. I don't understand why some people bully this little guy. I also have a very positive experiences about E16-50 lens.

There is nothing wrong with the 16-50 in the same way there was nothing wrong with the 18-55 on earlier Nex's, both are very capable lenses in the right hands and for the money are an absolute bargain.

Some people are just snobs when it comes to lenses and as I've said before, they'd more rather spend time pixel peeping and criticising than actually behind a camera taking photographs.

Their call I guess but I know which I'd prefer to be doing.
