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

Not sure I agree. I have a A6600 and the 16-50 kit lens. I use it periodically to keep things small. I'm not a pixel peeper but I like sharp pictures! The 16-50 is okay when there's plenty of light. However, you're talking about landscapes. I'm just not sure I'd be totally happy with that lens. Given the choice between my A6600 and my Olympus EM5.iii or my EM1.iii and a cheap Olympus 15-150 I think I'd take the Olympus. Stick the Olympus 12-40 f2.8 on there and it's no contest, and the EM5.iii with that lens is probably the same weight.
