I decided to get the a6000 to be my "carry everywhere" and travel camera. But I need to get a better understanding of the 2 lenses that I have options of.

The kit lens is a 16-50mm E-Mount Lens, and there is another, more expensive kit that has the Vario-Tessar T* E 16-70mm F4 ZA OSS Lens. And there is always the kit that has both.

So should I get the 16-50, 16-70 or both. What are the pros and cons of each?

This is what I tend to shoot, if that helps:

- HDR (mostly nature, buildings, etc.)

- Fast moving kids

- Street photography

- General life documentation

Forget the 16-50.
