Thanks, it was a modern Nikkor for AF. Do you think the fifty would prove good enough for travel (leaving for mexico in two weeks) and a graduation etc?

Modern AF-designed lenses are difficult and inaccurate to manually focus at best, and frustratingly impossible to focus at worst. There are surely exceptions, but most of the G Nikkors I have tried on my NEX-7 are just a pain to use.

The fifty is a little tight for travel shots, especially if you are wanting to get in scenery/landscapes/etc. You may want to go wider, your Sigma should work just fine for that. Graduation though...it all depends on where you are sitting!
