I was thinking that the Sony 18-55 and 16 lenses are sub par stuff, but I was wrong. I just did not understand the characteristics of the lenses. They are sharp enough stepped down to f8.

In low light them are just not good enough, so faster lenses are in order. When necessary.

Know your lenses,

agree with you. Many thinks 16mm f2.8 is a failure lens but hmmm here some examples that i shot yesterday and the result is not like a failure lens. Btw i love shot in B&W so sorry if my photos most of them are B&W
