I wouldn't mind a 1650 myself for it's convenience, but I have other lenses if I want to shoot wide or shoot quality. The average mall shopper will buy a NEX plus crappy lens like the 1650 and regret it later, or may buy another brand altogether...that is my point.

I can't agree more.

I suspect that some people here do not even own E16-50, but talking about as if they had used it a lot. I think, that it is almost a masterpiece of such a small 16-50mm APS-C zoom! No other manufacturer has been able to do similar lens yet.

Don't talk about E18-55. It's just very common clumsy basic zoom. You can't compare it to a fine piece of glass like E16-50. It is something special.The perfect companion to small NEX cameras. E18-55 is not such a lens, has never been In fact, E18-55 is too comical sight with NEX. A DSLR size zoom with mirrorless camera...And just average optical performance! Huh...Even tiny E16-50 can do better pictures. And I KNOW that - from experience.
