The Kit lens looks sharper and overall more consistent to me, especially in the corners. The Zeiss is softer on the right side, just like the one I returned. After seeing this, and confirming once again the QC problems and the overall feeling of "not much better than kit" of the 16-70, I will not reorder one, but stick with the 16-50 for now.

Thanks for posting this.
