Short version is I returned the A6500 and 16-70 and replaced it completely

I have this lens and the A6500. Best test is on a person where you can clearly see skin tones at least to me that is how I test lenses. Unless you shoot brick walls and trees all the time. I then will make a print at least 11x14 and if it looks good it is fine. Assuming exposure is good to begin with and I also like to shoot RAW and JPEG when doing this. It helps me figure out what needs a tweak if any

This said I felt something was wrong with the A6500 and 16-70 and not knowing which I ordered a duplicate camera and lens. I swapped them around so camera 1 with lens 2 kind of thing to see is it the camera or lens.

I was careful not to forget which camera and lens I bought first and kept them separate. Either way one was going back. Was it complete set one or two or lens one and camera two etc....

I ended up liking the complete second set and returned the first. I am not sure still if it was camera or lens but It seems better,

I have the return label printed for the 16-70. I think my a6500 is doing ok, I just bought it a couple of days ago so I havent really used it much. It will get work over the next week. Sonys QC seems really bad, I'm recognizing the importance of buying sony equip where I can easily exchange it.

Since I found such a good deal for the 16-70 ($700 brand new instead of $1K), I decided to go for it over the sony 18-105 even though I knew there was a chance to get a very soft and or de-centered lens. You win some and you lose some more.
