Side-by-Side with the 18-55 on NEX5N

I just got the 16-70 and ran a quick side by side test against my original 18-55 on my NEX5N.

18-55 OSS "Kit" lens

Zeiss 16-70 F4

Note that any leaf blurring is probably caused by movement, since it was fairly windy when I took these.

16-70 crop

I'm hoping I will see a difference under some other conditions, but on a simple shot like this the results look identical. Maybe I will see a difference on the A6000 when I get one.

For me, the biggest advantage in the 16-70 over the 18-55 is the increased zoom range, plus at last, Sony have made a "pinch" type lens cap that you can actually get hold of, without it flying off your fingers.
