Re: why has the 16mm f2.8 got such a bad rep?

The 16mm was one of Sony's first offerings for the NEX line--a consumer grade lens that was one of the kit options. That probably started the prejudice. The very soft corners was enough evidence to condemn it. The criticism might seem more valid if there was a competing lens that out-shined it. So far, there is nothing else as wide that is also compact and affordable. What's not to like?
