if canon can't match the distortion / optics of that 16-50 .. then someone shoot the engineers that worked on the Mark II.

is there a lens in production that has more distortion in that lens that isn't a fisheye?
i doubt you get more than 12Mp out of that lens even on a 24Mp sensor.

Most buyers don't know or care about distortion. Salespeople aren't gonna tell them, either. Customers will just see the 24MP, DSLR sensor and built-in EVF, in a similar-sized package, and buy the Sony.
Or, they'll see that cute, tiny Sony RX100 II with a lusty Carl Zeiss lens and "large 20MP DSLR sensor" (so the salesperson tells them, anyway ),and buy that one, since it easily slips into their pocket or purse (along with the money they save).
Mark II may continue the slow sales despite significant improvements.
