16-50 versus Sigma 16mm
1

I have the a5100 with the kit lens, the 16-50.  I bought it used and I'm pretty happy with using it as an "indoor camera", which is good because with no viewfinder it's pretty hard to use outdoors in daylight.  Anyhow, I noticed that a lot of folks were raving about the Sigma 16mm so I bought one.  I've been using it for a few days now and, frankly, I don't see much difference between it and the kit lens, except for the fact that it is MASSIVE and totally spoils the diminutive nature of the a5100.  I think I'm going to send it back but before I do, I wonder if maybe I got a bad copy.  Have others done a side-by-side with the Sigma 16 and the 16-50 kit lens?    Does your 16mm blow away the kit lens?
