Sony 16-50 F/2.8 is the best lens for any Sony APS-C sensor.

I can't agree with that.

May be the best is not in my knowledge. What is the best lens in your knowledge for kit lens replacement?

There is no such thing as best as no single lens can do it all. What is best for one person's uses may fall short for another. For example I find the 16-50 range too narrow for a walk around kit so I bought a Sigma 17-70 which suited me better. For indoor available light f 2.8 is a bit slow so I prefer the 35 f1.8. For sports I need a longer telephoto so I use a 70-300. That lens is a bit slow for some indoor sports venues so I am considering buying a 70-200 f2.8. If pure IQ is your goal there are a number of primes that will best the 16-50.

Look at the picture, not the pixels
Miss use of the ability to do 100% pixel peeping is the bane of digital photography because it causes people to fret over inconsequential issues.
