I have a feeling the 16-50 I used to have on my NEX6 was quite a bit sharper. Of course, I know I can't expect miracles from a cheap pancakezoom, but still. Took some pictures you can check out via this link: http://imgur.com/a/KWeRs

Do you find this acceptable or not? Not trying to stir up something, just wondering if I should get it replaced or not. Seems center is pretty good but quality falls apart very quickly in the corners. I've noticed this on some portraits too,

I also ordered theA6000 with the kit lens and so far I am not disappointed. I have not made any comparisons with any other lens, although I could try miy 18-55 kit lens from my NEX 5N.

I have attached three samples I took the next day after I received the camera. Please C-C and let me know if you see any flaws with the lens.
