A test of the selp1650 on the german site dkamera and it confirmed my experience. They tried this kitlens on the nex 6 and nex 3n: same result as I had: very average sharpness. They mention that a good P&S has better results.

Well, that's it, I'm ditching the Nex and getting... no, wait, is it really that bad?

Both nex's have class leading sensors which could resolve much more with a better lens. Also the in-camera jpg sharpening is very conservative.

How come I can see visible "halo" artifacts on sharp edges when sharpness is set to zero?  Seems a bit aggressive to me.

So, everyone who is so happy with their nex 6 + 1650 lens have never compared their pictures with a good P&S!

I've never seen a good P&S then.    The RX100 is unusual with its larger sensor, but even with a kit lens on a Nex, the P&S cameras fall short very quickly.  In good light at low ISO, they can do fine.  I'd rather use my Nex most of the time.
