I've got a good one and it works fine on my 5R. But not on my original NEX-3, and it was in that era when the 16 (and the 18-55) garnered their bad reputation.

Now my 16 is not de-centred but the UWA I bought recently was, so I returned the UWA to the store. Then yesterday the store called me to say that they had another example that came in. So I went down and examined it and guess what? It was the very same de-centred UWA which I had returned three months ago!
