Just wondering...do you find it enough of a wide angle lens? Or do you still have something like the DA 12-24mm or Sigma 10-20mm for a super-wide angle?
I have both the 12-24 and the 16-50. According to my tests, the 16-50 is slightly sharper at the same apertures and focal lengths. That said... The 12-24 is better corrected for distortions. You can of course correct this in software but I'm using Lightroom and it still doesn't support distortion correction.

Also, 16mm is wide but when you want ultrawide, 16mm is just barely adequate. Even 12mm is not enough IMHO.
