The 18-55 may not be outdated. But the NEX-7 was designed around the 18-55. Quality control is maintained for the NEX-7 by sourcing it's black 1855 lenses from a different factory, in Japan, where sample variation is more closely controlled.

The regular-production 18-55 and 16-50 lens may be probably considered sub-standard for the NEX-7
