Sony SELP1650 16-50mm f/3.5-5.6 OSS Reviews

Ephotozine reviews the Sony SELP1650 16-50mm f/3.5-5.6 OSS and writes;
“At 16mm, sharpness is already excellent in the centre of the frame at maximum aperture. Unfortunately the same cannot be said about the clarity delivered towards the edges of the frame at maximum aperture for this focal length, which can only be considered fairly good. Stopping down the aperture improves sharpness across the frame, with peak clarity being achieved between f/5.6 and f/8, where sharpness in the centre remains excellent, and good to very good towards the edges of the frame.”
Rating: ★★★★☆

Photographyblog reviews the Sony SELP1650 16-50mm f/3.5-5.6 OSS and writes;
“In terms of sharpness, the lens exceeded these expectations. In the central areas of the frame, the lens delivers good to very good sharpness throughout its entire zoom range.”
Rating: ★★★★☆

Ephotozine reviews the Sony SELP1650 16-50mm f/3.5-5.6 OSS and writes;
