While I believe the new 70-350mm zoom is a great choice the new 16-55mm purchase  is a bit harder to justify because of a simple reason….the high price! Of course the tariff battle between USA and China isn’t helping here :(

That  said the 16-55mm is a good news for the following reasons:

  1. It’s a clear statement from Sony that  the APS-C system is well alive and will be supported in the years to come
  2. It’s the first f/2.8 zoom. Hopefully a 55-150mm  f/2.8 zoom will follow as next :)
  3. Image samples posted on Sony.net and MTF graph show impressive IQ. Looks more like  a GM lens than G.
