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

One more thing: the kit lens smaller aperture especially at the long end limits the amount of light to the autofocus mechanism.  This never seemed to be a problem with DSLR's but with mirrorless they are much more finicky on amount of light to autofocus, in my experience.
