Re: Is the 16-50 kit lens decent when stopped down?

I find 16-50 PZ OSS pretty good wide open especially around 24 mm. I prefer using the 18-55 OSS kit zoom, but that is larger lens.

The 20mm F2.8 is very good in general. I've kept mine for use on my A7III. The Sigma 19mm F2.8 is another option. There's also the Samyang AF 18mm and 24mm primes.

These all vary more or less copy to copy.
