Please check these (1650 softness)
May 8, 2014

Taking my camera to my dealer tomorrow morning to compare my kitlens to a different one. Mind, I'm not dissing the a6000 (far from it, love it!) but the included kitlens seems way too soft for what it should be. Of course it won't do miracles, but keep in mind that I used to have a NEX6 with the 1650 (sold it a few months ago) and never had any issues with the IQ of the kitlens. Sure, distortion is bad and corners can be a bit soft, but the kitlens I currently own seems to be a LOT worse.

So with an open mind, can you just check out these (fullsize ooc jpg)? Exif info is present. Took the pictures with different apertures. Even more strange to me is that the picture taken at f3.5 turns out sharper than smaller apertures, and gets worse the more I close the lens down.

It's not the camera btw, tested with the Zeiss 24mm which is tack sharp. So it's not a sensor problem.
