Re: Rupe: 16-50 pancake kit lens

There are lots of hackers for some of the better Panny m43 cameras. There must be a hacker who can optimize or unleash the 5N's functions especially the touchscreen, to operate more like a 5R. Especially the touch shutter feature.

Now comparing the old NEX zoom (18-55) zoom with the new 16-50, I would be looking at the big weakness of the 18-55. That it's really only usefull between about 25mm to 40mm, due to terrific distortion. View the tests at SLQ.

So what is the useful range of the new 16-50 in comparison? Hopefully, the entire 16-50mm?
