The issue with the 16mm is getting a good copy and even a good one stopped down still blurs the extreme corners - almost every example I've seen here and other forums ( including my own experience ) shows soft blurry bottom left corner.

I guess I was lucky when I bought my SEL16/2.8. All the air plane pictures in my gallery were taken with it shortly after I got it.

Here is a more recent picture I took with the SEL16/2.8 and VCL ECU1 at f8, 1/800, ISO100.

I don't think I have any issues with blurry left bottom corners


Actually, you do! At this angle almost any lens/shot will show some blur. This is not a good example.

I am not criticising the 16mm - I've got it as well and I encouraged the OP to get it but the truth is, it does suffer from corner softness.
