Re: a6000: which lens to buy (kit or 16-70)

I own the 16-50 and also the Zeiss 24mm. Have also owned the 18-55 with my 5N (sold). Very much considering to get the 16-70 because I'm in the process of moving from SLR to the A6000 as my main camera system.

How much better is the 16-70 optically compared to the 16-50? Of course it'll be a lot better, but I wonder in what areas specifically. My 16-50 is only decently sharp in the center and the distortion and vignetting is well documented. Can't seem to find much info about the 16-70 though, let alone a direct comparison with the 16-50.
