Apples to Oranges?

Which legacy lenses?

One thing is certain, a kit lens is rarely a stunner... but as far as basic 18-55/3.5-5.6 APS-C kit lenses go among various brands, the NEX version is actually very good.

That said, it really all depends on what you are comparing to...

You said legacy glass, but not what lenses you were using. This is a pretty important factor in understanding the two different results... especially if the max aperture or focal lengths vary...
