The Tokina seems to do the best job of sharpness, contrast and control of chromatic aberration.  BTW, compare them all against Nikon's underrated 16-85mm if you get a chance.

Yes it does. And it's quite obvious that the 16-50 is soft and distorted at the edges and corners, at least when wide open. There is vignetting, too. Hopefully someone will do a comparison with an 18-55 kit lens.
