How to convince my partner about the benefits of SEL 10-18mm compared to kit 16-50mm?
1 month ago

Ok so I have a brand new A6000 with kit lens. My plan is/was to get SEL 35mm 1.8 + 10-18mm and call it a day.

I was planning to get 10-18mm first but my wife thinks 800 is lot of money. She said that I was not a pro so what is the big deal and why I could not just just use the kit lens for everything? I said I could but it is like buying a Lamborghini Aventador and putting square wheels on it.

To that she said that I should have got VW Golf instead lol

I tried to get technical but it was too much info for her. She wants some visual examples of why we need 10-18mm over the kit lens for landscape photos

She did say I can buy it because she loves me but I feel too guilty

Sony a6000
