    On my a5000, Distortion Comp. is set to AUTO with the 1650 kit lens, but it doesn't seem to help much. Barrel distortion is very obvious at 16mm. At about 22mm and up things improve. Is there another economical emount zoom that does a better job on the wide end? Appreciate any suggestions. Thanks.

    I have noticed this so always switch to my SEL16F28 when doing wide - not as versatile (as it's a prime!), but maybe a solution as they are cheap...

    Thanks for the tip, José. I'll check out that lens.
