Re: NEX-6: something you don't like about the 16-50mm power zoom lens

I find the zoom/focus ring a bit too small, fiddly and close to the body for my specific hands. The only way to hold it comfortably leaves the (abysmallly placed) strap lugs digging into my hand.

OTOH I do really like that you can set it up to switch the ring from zoom to focus when you half press the shutter. So I can zoom in, half-press, and change focus using peaking if I want. Though if I forget to keep the half-press, I get a bit of "Dramatic Zoom Action" when I let go.
