Regarding "The default shutter speed at the wide end in A or P mode is 1/60th" and the camera choosing F4 instead of F3.5. I'm not really seeing that.

Sorry, I should have qualified that with "using auto ISO".  It will raise the ISO rather than use slower than 1/60th.  Shame you can't customise this behaviour as the IS is easily good enough to use 1/15th, sometimes even 1/8th, under the right circumstances.

The F4 rather than F3.5 also applies to auto ISO in P mode.  Seems like Sony haven't got much faith in the 16-50 wide open!  Which, again, is a shame because my copy at least is pretty good at F3.5.
