The only on line reviews I have seen of the two lenses was on ephotozine, but they were tested at different times on two different bodies and many of the test images are not identical so it is difficult to compare scientifically.  On the photos of the conservatory building, it appears that the edge sharpness of the 16-70 is far superior to that of the 16-50 despite the bar graphs not indicating that great a difference.  If I were buying the A6000, I'd get the 16-70 without hesitation.
