From The Phoblographer conclusion :

We really like the 16-70mm f4. There really isn’t much wrong with the lens at all. To be honest, it isn’t problematic, but instead it is stellar. Our personal preferences though lean more towards a faster aperture option and we really think that Sony can create something of the sort. Kudo to the company on creating a fast focusing and small lens though to work well with an E mount body. However, we really just wish that it could let some more light in.

From ePhotozine conclusion :

There is no doubt that this is a high quality optic, that delivers very high sharpness in the centre of the frame and sports excellent build quality and a useful optical stabiliser. However, the sharpness towards the edges of the frame isn’t of the same standard as the centre and CA levels are higher than you might expect for a lens of this price.
