Re: Sony 16-70 and 18-135 both reduced on Amazon.co.uk

I picked up the 16-70 at the much reduced price and it arrived today. I already have a 16-55 f/2.8, but wanted something lighter and with OSS I could use on the lighter a6000, which of course has no IS. I tested it quickly outside against the 16-55 today. My copy of the 16-70 seems well centred, though it still has pretty dubious corners and edges, even at f/8. Against the 16-55, it is less sharp in the entire image, has less contrast,  and is much weaker in the corners and edges. The 16-55 is of course, a very sharp and contrasty lens, even if it has silly levels of distortion.
