... when mounting a better lens?

I just had the opportunity to purchase an A65 for a really good price.
But clearly the kit lens (although the 18-55 II) was part of the package.

Now i ordered the Sony 16-50 f/2.8 and really do hope that this lens
will help to improve the image quality. I do shoot RAW exclusively, was
assured to buy the A65 not least because of the dpr-statement "rewarded
with results that are close to what we've seen from high-end full-frame cameras
such as the Canon EOS 5D Mark II or Sony's own Alpha 900."

Up to now (with the kit lens) i am rather disappointed in terms of IQ produced
by the A65. Details look mushy and flat, sharpness is far from being impressive.

Can anybody brighten up my mind by telling me that the A65's IQ will improve
when using the Sony 16-50 f/2.8 lens?

Thank you very much for any kind of help.

Well I didn't read this whole thread but I'm impressed. Most of my work can be found on my Flickr feed below. Lenses I use are the Tamron 17-50mm F2.8 constant apreture lens for landscape and Sigma 70-300mm APO for the telephoto...
