    Hi there,
    Has anybody checked out how much the IQ of the 16mm f2.8 lens is improved by the lens correction features on the Nex 5n and 7 ? I have this lens and a Nex 3 and 5 also the wide angle and fish eye attachments. It would be interesting to find out how much they are also improved especially the chromatic aberration.

    Thanks
    Robert

    There's still some CA, but the edge sharpness and CA seem better on the 5N and C3 than on the 5 and 3. I'm not sure about the 7, but judging from performance of other lenses, I'm guessing the 16 won't perform as well on that.

    I haven't tested 16mm on Sony nex-5 vs 5n, but I have seen improvement on my CV 12mm lens with nex-5n in comparison to nex-5 as I posted here:

    I don't have nex-7 also, but the Fred Miranda alt forum has lots of tests of wide rf lenses and the conclusion:
