i had both lenses on my nex5n...18-55 is sharper generally, espescially at F6.3 which is the biggest ap. on both lenses, 18-55 is sharper....also, at tele end, bokeh of 18-55 is much better, let's say, with 18-55mm, your object is better isolated from background...

i also had problems with 16-50mm on nex5N despite i updated the fw issued for this lens..however, at smaller apertures, as far as i remember F11 and smaller aps, lens simply refuses focusing,,,...but portability of  16-50mm is great.

i'm intend to change my kit lens 18-55mm to PZ 16-50mm. May i know in what condition the lens were refused focusing?

Yes i like the portability. For sharper or not i think it's slight different and it will be okay for me.

in any lighting condition,,,bright day light...it doesnt matter, if you are above F11 (i hope i remember correctly), it simply refuses to focus on distant subjects....it used to focus on subject a few meters away from me but , when i try to focus on 20-30meters away, it doesnt.it can be a problem for landscape ...
