how does it compare against 16-50/2.8 ?

I had both. Across the frame, the 24-70 is as sharp or maybe even sharper than the 16-50 in terms of line pairs per mm.

So your pixels are as sharp as 16-50 but you get more of them.

On a 24 megapixel APS-C vs 24 megapixel FF, given similar sensor performance, the 16-50 could be slightly better because you don't need to stop it down as much to get the same depth of field.
