"a fine piece of glass like E16-50"?

Is that a joke? It's built very cheaply, with huge sample variance, and that has been well-documented. There is not one single piece of expensive glass in the assembly. New buyers are taking a risk buying one of these. Caveat Emptor!

The last time I had the pleasure of replying to one of your posts one or 2 weeks ago you admitted that you had never had a 16-50 or had used it. Has that changed.

There are indeed lot of posts bashing the 16-50mm PZ to pieces and about 90% are from YOU!! Why don't you at last get one, then you can smash it personally.
