Just to be different...

I like to point out that the 16-45 is limited when using the internal flash from about 16-28, the extened barrel will get in the way and leave a shadow in your picture, I also noticed on mine that most of the pictures were a stop or two darker then compared to my Pentax primes and Sigma 18-50. I sold mine a while ago...but wouln't mind having one back some day for the sharpness and I would learn to deal or compensate with the underexposure tendency. Last fall when I was looking to upgrade my Sigma 18-50 I was torn between getting aonther 16-45(despite it's issues) or another Penatx zoom model...I eventually went with a couple primes instead and replced the Sigma with the Pentax 18-55.
