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

For a landscapes I would give this small kitlens a try. For asked money is usefull. Expect some quality variation in lens copies, but in general should be "decent" at f8-11 and between 16-35mm. I sold kit and bought 20f2.8, but for your use case would be better and much cheaper.

Of course expectation of "decent" vary very wildly between users
