The issue with the 1670 was that it had a very high rate of QC issues like decentering, a lower sharpness outside of the center than the kit lens and a price not matching its image quality. Bokeh was nice, colors are as with 18105 G lens.

I tested the lens repeatedly and then was quite happy to use the 18105 instead. Now I have the 1655 and can only say, this lens delivers image quality far above all other Sony zooms.

Its only drawbacks are weight and lack of more tele. But since IQ at 55mm is so good cropping can take you a long way.
