Changing Nex-7 Kit Lens for an Alpha lens
Oct 18, 2012

Hey all.

I have a Nex-7 with a few lenses (the kit lens, the sel55-200, the zeiss 24 1.8) and also have the LA-EA2 adaptor with a couple of lenses that aren't available for the nex (sony 100mm Macro, sigma 8-16mm UWA).

Since i have the LA-EA2 already, and i never use the kit lens, I'm wondering what people here think about replacing it with an Alpha lens like the Sony 16-50 or the Zeiss 16-80. How do these lenses compare to the kit 18-55 lens? i know i'll lose stabilization, but what about sharpness, PQ, etc? From what i've read, these lenses should take better advantage of the 24mp sensor, correct?

Sony Alpha NEX-7
