Personally I think the 16-50mm is a great little lens. I love the size, the fact that it is 16mm vs 18mm.

I shoot mostly in highest quality JPEG and have not had any problems yet.

Perhaps you were lucky, finding a good one.

User GodSpeaks posted in another thread that the 16-50 was sharper than the Sigma 19, with her samples.  More luck?

Fortunately, the older kit lens 18-55mm is still available from Sony. And the 20mm f2.8 pancake is also showing in the catalogue, for just $10 more than the 1650. I've not seen a review of this new lens.
