Nex 6 lenses, need advice
Jan 18, 2013

I just bought the Sony Nex 6 and love the camera. It came with a free 16mm F2.8, the 16-50 zoom, and I got $100 off the SEL 55-210. I like the 55-210 but would prefer the 18-200 and I see there are now 2 available, the original SEL 18200 and the newer SEL 18200LE which is slightly less expensive and also lighter and less bulky. What I would really like is a zoom lens that goes to about 135 but that is not available at this time.

I am considering returning the 55-201 to get one of the 18-200s. I like the quality of the shots with the lens but it is not wide enough and I rarely need the 210. But I am torn as it get great reviews and also I am confused as to which 18-200 is better. Any input on the differences between the two 18-200s or on the wisdom of just keeping the 55-210? I may in the future get a prime or two in the 24 or 35 mm range. I would love a multi-use walk around lens for nature, people, travel scenery. This is my first foray into the Nex world and would really appreciate some advice. Thanks, Kathi
