I'd just like to chime in with some 16-50 PZ thoughts as I recently acquired it for my 5N.

This shot is great. Love the clouds. I find the 16-50PZ to be perfectly fine, even at apertures below f8. Your shot is a nice example. With a bit of PP, your shot is even more dramatic (in my opinion). Hope you don't mind.

Nice, thanks!  Yes, I realized when I got back in the house that the photo came out a tad dark.  One of the limitations of the LCD only for the 5N I'm afraid.  I like the blues in PP, makes the photo pop quite a bit more.  I actually love this spot so much I went back with my K-01, Sigma 17-70 and my circular polarizer to test out a few more shots.  I was able to get the contrasty blues I wanted.

Coincidentally, comparing the shots made me realize that the 16-50 isn't quite up to snuff with my Sigma but certainly to be expected from a significantly smaller lens.
