See the excellent series of test shots by "Blue Skies" here   http://www.dpreview.com/forums/post/51194331   comparing the 16-50 to several other lenses. Henry doesn't try to make a scientific lab-style test, but this real world series of photographs convinced me that in the right hands, the 16-50 (some copies of it, at least) can be a very good lens.
