Just an impressive comparison between the "scorned" E PZ 1650 on a NEX-6 and the Nikkor 10-24 lens on the Nikon D5300. The Nikon lens costs 3 times the Sony and is considered to be a high-end lens in Nikon DX format.

All settings were the same, tripod was used. First the Nikon and then the Sony. Focus (spot mode) is at the center of the big tree at the front of the image.

Look at how much detail the Sony combo has captured (or how much detail the Nikon combo lost...) especially on the trunk. Sharpness for the Sony combo is outstanding. RAW files gave the same results.
