Back from London / Stockholm - Trade SEL10-18 for the 16-70?
Mar 30, 2014

Hi all,

I just returned from a trip to London and Stockholm. I took my NEX 6 with the 35F1.8 and the SEL1018 as the only two lenses. The 35 stayed on the camera for about 90% of the trip (I find it quite inconvenient to change lenses while I'm out and about - maybe because I'm still quite new to this whole photography thing). Due to the experience, I was contemplating selling the SEL1018 and grabbing the Zeiss 16-70 as a single walkaround lens and also to add a "portrait" lens. Any opinions on that? I partially am worried about getting it since in the future, if I want to go to the A7, it may not be the best choice.

Oh, and I took the PacSafe Camsafe Venture V16 ( and I can highly recommend this as a camera bag. Has a REMOVABLE padded compartment (which is great if you want to just use the bag as a day pack), a laptop / hydration pocket (fit my 15" Macbook Air), rain cover (very handy in both cities), and has a side pocket for accessing the camera gear without having to take off the bag.

Few photos from the trip (post-processed, so sorry if you don't like the style):



I think this was the SEL1018


SEL1018 I believe

Thanks all!
