Considering selling my SEL 16 and adaptors and replacing with the Nikon 1 6.7-13 VR...
Jan 30, 2013

... am I making the right choice?

The nikon will cost me about £180 more than i'll get for the 16 + UWA + Fisheye, but its stabilised, from what ive seen has better IQ and a much smaller overall package. I'm also considering selling my 18-55 as well as my Tamron 18-200 that im already trying to get rid of.

My intended general purpose set up is.

NEX 5N + sigma 19 and SEL 35. Great for low light, wide angle and general use.

V1 + 6.7-13 and 30-110. landscape and outdoor telephoto use. may be some indoor wide angle use. fast autofocus.

I also have my manual lenses for my NEX for when I need a specific use (portrait, gigs, macro).
