"If were talking about the NEX/E-Mount then relative to EF or EF-M your talking about optically inferior kit lenses. Not sure where your getting than $199 figure for the Sony 50mm as looking at the big use outlets they all have it priced at $299 which is more than double the cost of the Canon."

I have no personal experience with the E 16-50 but on the whole, evidence presented in this thread, above, refutes you contention that the 18-55 kit and the 16-70 non-kit lenses are somehow optically inferior to the kit Canon APS-C zoom lenses.

Furthermore, the Sony E 50/1.8 is one of the finest performing and constructed lenses available for Sony APS-C cameras.  Why on Earth are you suddenly throwing this prime lens into the fray, when it's only been zooms that have been discussed up to this point? The E50 prime is far better performing compared to any of the Canon or Sony zooms previously mentioned.

You are using an old troll trick called a 'red herring.'
