Which SAL lens can actually be held by the camera?
Feb 16, 2013

Ok so long story short, I went and bought a SAL2470z extremely excited about the amazing lens and burnt a hole in my wallet. Came up and mounted it up on my NEX6 and couldn't help but laughed out loud. It's just ridiculous in size and weight. Not to mention, forums here are not even recommending me to hold the combo by the camera, I pretty much have to carry it by holding the lens and let the camera hang loose.

So the whole point of EA2 is I want a somewhat versatile walk around lens so I can capture moving subjects (my gf, pets, random walking people in the street, candid stuff) which EA2 excels in with much faster focus. Which lens will be good for this while keeping weight/size under control. I still want a camera that I can hold by it's grip.

Sony Alpha NEX-6
