Re: Sony also admits that 16mm F2.8 is a total failure

Yep - TOTAL failure.  As soon as Sony announced the 20mm pancake, all the photos I took with the 16mm lens just went black.  All of them!  I had some pretty decent shots with it, but apparently it is indeed a total failure, so all of the shots I took just ceased to exist, or turned to complete failure.  Even the ones I post processed or saved multiple copies of...gone!  Large prints I made are now just black paper in frames...failure!

I hate when that happens.

I remember I once had a camera I took pretty good photos with for months, then a review came out and said the camera wasn't very good and a lot of posters peppered the boards with criticism, and all the sudden, all the photos I had taken with it turned to junk.  Tilted horizons, horrible noise, JPG artifacts suddenly filled in everywhere, colors went askew.  Someone needs to stop this from happening!  Every time a review comes along that is less than perfect, or a poster starts a thread about how terrible a camera or lens is, all the great photos taken with that device are instantly destroyed or rendered useless and horrible.  This is a travesty!
