Re: Enrique & Laurie: after the 16-50 fiasco...

Well, this thread and others have put me off the 16-50pz as the ideal solution I've been after for a more pocketable camera.  I have the Nex-5N, and the best small configuration for me so far has been the sigma 30 lens.  I have the 16mm too, but find it just too wide.

Tonight I just lucked into a great deal on a barely used RX100 (with case, body grip, lensmate filter adapter plus 2 nice filters, 16gb memory card, and transferable 2-year protection plan) for not much more than I would have paid for the 16-50pz I'd pre-ordered (no it's not stolen, I just have an acquaintance who is on an endless quest for the perfect camera).  I think my curiosity about the 16-50 is much reduced!
