What I was most curious about was whether the FS700 would recognize the lens as part of the E-mount family (it did), and whether the FS700 zoom rocker had any effect (it didn't).

But since you bring it up, the SELP1650 vignettes horribly on the FS700 at "16mm"... but it's "16mm" is actually noticeably wider than the SEL16F28's 16mm (the E-mount 16mm f2.8), so one must presume that the SELP1650 is actually more like 14mm or 14.5mm at it's widest, and the NEX6 makes it a "16mm" lens via an electronic crop to control the vignetting.

As I clearly stated... not a lens you'd want to use on the FS700, just a fun experiment.
Dude, relax. I tried it on the FS700 too, for the same reason, and got the same results. "Also" = in addition to what you stated, not "but you're forgetting this."

I happen to think the 16-50, if not for the distortion (and vignetting), would've been useful for some handheld shooting. So light, and stabilized, and a good range, and with mechanically zoom hopefully eventually. The only other stabilized lens that goes this wide is the Canon 15-85mm via Metabones, but that's way heavier.

LOL - I am relaxed - we are always relaxed here in the tropics... unless we're not!

So you don't consider the Sony E-mount 10-18mm f4.0 OSS (SEL1018) a contender in the wide category???

Mine is on the way, but importation & customs takes quite some time here (because those guys are quite relaxed too).

Personally, I think it is one of the most interesting wide angle lenses released for any format or mount in quite some time. This one seems to have everything going for it. All that remains to be seen is whether it operates in Steadyshot Standard or Active mode. Sony specs say Active, however, since they lied about the SELP1650, I tend to be suspicious until it is sitting on the front of my FS700. Either way, it will be fine, but Active is so much nicer hand held...
