The quality of a lens seems to be directly related to the amount of people who have it.

When I bought my NEX two years ago, the general opinion was that the 18-55 was better than most of other brands kit lenses and better than the 16-50 (this one was just released with the NEX5R and NEX6 and was not very popular).

Now that NEX or Ax000 cameras come with the 16-50 (and therefore most of the people buy the camera with it), It is more and more common to read that the 16-50 is better than the 18-55 and even comparable to the 16-70z.
