Do _not_ go rushing out to buy a "better camera". You might consider, if you can afford it, getting one good prime lens.


I appreciate reading about her, that is the inspiration I need

Which prime would offer a completely different experience from the kit lens (or the Sigma 30 because I have that coming in the mail)?

Legacy lens appeals greatly to me, as I learned a long time ago to take pictures on a film 35mm camera and miss the way those lenses feel. I already use manual focus, but if I don't use a tripod will a legacy lens be disastrous? And which are best for compatibility with NEX?

You only need a tripod for the kind of very high detail landscapes that you are aiming at.

90% of shots with a NEX can be done hand held, especially shots of people. The point is that camera movement is the main cause of unsharp images - and OSS only helps a bit.

Something like a 90mm or 100mm lens would be quite different from the 30, and lenses of these lengths from any well known maker will be good.

But I strongly recommend _not_ buying any more gear for a few months at least, while you get to know the camera and the 30mm lens thoroughly.
