A6000 kit lens worth getting?
Apr 3, 2014

hi, i'm a novice interested in getting A6k. i have used first gen m43 (oly pen e-pl1) for 3 years, taking mostly portraits and travel pictures. i feel like it's time to upgrade and decided to get a6k based on reviews here.

with pen, i used wide fast prime lens (panasonic 20mm f1.7) exclusively. it was so much better than the oly kit zoom in terms of sharpness, color, and low light performance (obvious since kit was somewhere around f3.5 i believe).

i haven't read much about sony's kit zoom lens here. i'm down for getting a kit zoom if it provides decent quality and if i can utilize a6k's fast AF with it. However, if the quality is terrible (like the one i had with e-pl1), i don't want to waste $ on it.

(fyi, i'm def getting a prime lens, considering 35f18 or one of sigma lenses, 19 or 33)

advice plz, thx.
