Re: Very different reviews for SAL1680Z?

I used mine with a350, a55 and now a77; very very good lens

It's not that difficult:

- want a f2.8 lens which is sealed and you can live with max. 50 mm? then get the 16-50.

- you wanna youse it for video very often: no doubt the 16-50.

- you prefer to have +30 mm at the long end over max. aperture or want a light weight/smaller lens? then go for the 16-80!

Optically they are both very good, in my eyes you can't go really wrong for fotos no matter which one you choose...

I did a comparison about my 16-105 and the 16-80, the 16-80 was a bit better but not that much... esp. in CA it won clearly.
