Re: 16-50 pancake kit lens

The retracting aspect of the new Sony 16-50 and the use of SW correction to control distortion etc do not in themselves mean that the the results must be compromised to a point where they are unacceptable.  If you take a quick look off-brand at Canon's G1X lens......... It's a fixed retracting 15-60 f2.8 - 5.8 (28-112  FF equivalent) and the camera does use SW to correct distortion.   It delivers excellent results across the FL, aperture and ISO ranges.  It can be done.

I too am patiently awaiting some serious tests of the NEX 6 and the PZ lens.

Cheers,  Rod
