Rather question than a review

I bought it as a pocket camera attracted by its 16mm lens (24mm equivalent) for landscapes and architecture, but the vignetting appeared so bad that I gave it up. It's fantastic as a camera for portraiture since the central area is extremely sharp on all focal lengths (16-50mm). So far I couldn't activate the auto flash! The video is pretty good and the sound recording is fantastic! Also, the auto-focus works perfectly, fast and accurate! I use ARW files and the quality of the shots is dramatically enhanced that way. When I say the vignetting is bad, I must add that I bought it with its kit lens 16-50mm!
