I'll keep mine

I did extensive testing against my LX5.  The LX5 has always been "good enough" and the 16-50 performed sharper than the LX5 at the focal lengths I tested (24, 50, 75) both in the center and the edges.  I plan to keep this camera and 16-50 in my jacket or travel-vest pocket.

BTW, it is not as sharp as my OM-D with the reg43 14-54II, but of course the weight of the 14-54 with adapter is more than the NEX6 +1650!!!
