Is the kit lens really that bad?
1 month ago

Before I jump and upgrade my nex 3n, I'm tempted to try another lens other than the kit lens it came with (16-50) esp after reading post after post (as well as reviews) about it not being that great.  I actually enjoy the camera and think the images range from ok to very nice but am curious.

I only have 500 max to spend.  The 50's I have tried seem good but it's a bit long for a fixed lens.  However, my first concern is sharpness so I'd consider it.  I haven't heard good things about the 16 at all.

Any recommendations?  Is there really that much of a jump in image quality when you move away from the kit lens?
