Those samples showed better contrast, typical of Zeiss. I believe that the difference in clarity would be even greater when used on people.

I tend to disagree here. Zeiss shows warmer colors due to its T* coating and premium (hopefully) glass used in lens, BUT in this case 18-55 shows better contrast. It's easy to get carried away and mix warmer colors with better contrast. If you look at 100% magnification 18-55 resolved details more and some scratches (in shadow groves) are visible only on 18-55 pics - better contrast. I think either this copy of 16-70 is a little off or his 18-55 is too good.
