Should I buy NEX 6 w/16-50 zoom or body only?
Jun 13, 2013

I already own a Nex C3 and have the three Sony lenses for it: 16MM pancake, 50MM portrait and 55-210MM zoom.  Is my current 16MM a sharper, materially better lens for wide angle shots than the 16-50MM zoom set at 16?  I'm confident that the 50MM lens I own is faster and likely sharper than the the zoom at 50MM. Bottom line: I am wondering whether I should save the money and just get the body only rather than deal with another lens.  The only advantages I see for getting the zoom are size, good price when bundled with a new body, and reduced lens changing.  I use the camera mainly for travel pictures.  Thanks.
