I just switched from a rx100 to a nex 5n. My only lens right now is the sel50f18. I really like it for pics of my 4 year old. My budget is very tight so the obvious choice of the zeiss 24 is not happening. The new 35 that's coming interests me but my thought is its too close to the 50 (I could be wrong thinking this). The sony 16 I heard isnt that good. How's the sigma 19 or the nex kit lens either the 18-55 or the 16-50? Really any feedback on this is welcome. On a side note I really liked using the rx100 better but I feel the nex will be better in the long run as I get better at this photography thing.

I'm having 5N too and considering between CZ 24mm and upcoming 35mm 1.8. If you can not get the CZ then 35mm 1.8 is a good choice. If you feel it's too close to 50mm, then you can sell the 50mm. You can do both landscape and portrait with the 35mm.

Another choice can be Sigma 30mm 2.8 which you can save $250 but it does not have image stabilizer and 2.8 it not very fast relative to. 1.8
