thanks to a fellow photographer and colleague i had the chance to put my hands on the ultra-compact sony e1650 power zoom lens. it was the first time ever that i used a zoom lens with my nex7. the reason for that was a pretty practical one: i needed an undistorted wide-angle view for some kind of indoor photography, more on that in a few weeks.
well, having the pancake already mounted, i went outside and gave it a try at different conditions and apertures; mostly at the for me unusual and almost unknown wide end of the focal lengths. to sum it up: it works, but you should not expect too much of this low budget kit lens. it's neither sharp (even less if you investigate the edges) nor well-corrected (rather the opposite, its results are horribly distorted; at least the in cam correction works well), but as always you just get what you pay for.
