The more I research the topic the more I think I would need to splurge on a modern lens first.

I wish there was a Sony E mount equivalent of Sigma 17-50/2.8 OS (but compact). The difference when shooting the same subject at same settings with Sony kit and T3i with Sigma is noticeable, and I think it's lens more than camera.

Right now it appears the lens that could make most difference is SEL50F1.8. Doesn't look like there's a zoom available yet that would combine the IQ of Sigma with compact factor at reasonable price.

I wish Sony had a 35 1/8 or similar, 50 mm is a bit tight.
