Re: Flash is good for outside also (long)

So I have had more time to think this over and I enjoy using the on board flash still. I am currently not able to afford any Sony flash and that is what I want. I must say that I have learned a lot in the 4 months since posting this but, at the time I didn't have the luxury of waiting and dropping that kind of money. So in the end I did purchase the 50mm 1.8 and I don't regret it. I have gotten some fantastic shots with it of my two daughters. The example here is not with the 50 but the Zeiss 16-80mm. I love this lens! I did use the on board flash to shot this picture and would love to get some feed back to see if I am heading in the right direction. Thanks for all the info you all provided. Also I will be purchasing the 35mm one day also.
