16-50 experiances

I must have had mine quite some time as I paid about 445. I have had the SDM problems and carried out the diy repairs successfully. Having heard about centering faults being common, I carried out tests on centre and all four corners at various zoom settings and was pleased and relieved that the results were rather good. The only weakness that I have found is that the lens has C A at times which is not cured by the in camera post processing in my K5.
