Forget the 16-50.

100% agreed. The pancake zoom always leaves me wanting. Wide out, the barrel distortion is annoying EVEN with lens correction. Moreover, anything out of center always appears a bit soft to me. Candidly, the ol' SEL1855 is a much better lens in my opinion. But, I totally get that people like having a small lens to carry around with them and I can see the attraction. I just think that it is an expensive lens for that purpose. Heck, you can almost buy a Sony RX100 for that amount and boom, there's ANOTHER camera.
