Walk around options
5 months ago

I'm looking to get something that would be more flexible than the primes I currently own. For the most part, I use the 50mm indoors and the 105 or 70-300 outside. It's mainly to photograph my son when we go out somewhere. I'm not looking to do landscape photography. We're not planning any fabulous scenic vacations anytime soon. I'm looking for a light option. I'll probably add another prime (28 or 35mm) within the next few years. It's just not what I'm looking for at the moment. Here are the options I've come up with:

a) get the 24-85mm vr "kit" lens

b) leave the DSLR home and pick up something like the sony rx-100.

Which would you take with you when you walked around an amusement park with a 4 year old?
