The SEL1855 was not only a tiny bit sharper but also 1/2 stop or less brighter (@ f/8 the shutter speed for the 1855 was 1/15 whereas for the 1650 was 1/20). Overall, the 1855 gave better results even though the difference was marginal.

Yes, I was wondering about the shorter shutter speed but brighter image! Thought perhaps the lighting had changed between shots... Very odd.

Actually, there is nothing odd with those pictures. This tiny exposure difference is to be expected as the 1855 gave a bit slower shutter speed (let more light in), so we have a brighter picture overall.
