I got both 1680za and 1650.
I just have compared the both lens yesterday.
16mm, 24mm, 32mm,50mm at F4.5
I found that there is no big difference between two in the center sharpest.
Both lens are very sharp.
The 1650 may have more CA but it is welly corrected inside the camera.
1680 have long range of zoom,
While the 1650 has larger aperture, faster and quite AF and weather seal .
Out door I prefer the 1680za, it seem to have better color.
But Indoor, I prefer the 1650, because I can use lower ISO at F2.8.
