hi guys,

got a nex 6.. was hoping to get feedback from those in europe as to what lenses you would bring with you if you had to pick 3 lenses. I haven't been to europe before, and i've got a fair few lenses to choose from..

Sigma 19mm 2.8
Nikkor 20mm 3.5
Canon FD 24mm 2.8
Canon FD 28mm 2.8
Pentacon Electric 29mm 2.8
Sigma 30mm 2.8
Fujian 35mm 1.7
SMC Takumar (Pentax Asahi) 50mm 1.4
Olympus OM Zuiko Auto-S 50mm 1.8
Jupiter 50mm 2.0
Chinon Multicoated 55mm 1.7
Jupiter 85mm 2.0
Sony 55-210mm 4.5-6.3
Sony 16-50mm 3.5-5.6
i am leaning towards the 16-50, 55-210and either the sigma 30mm or 19mm
Unsure if the 55-210 will be needed at all? should i leave this at home?
any comments. I've been looking at the Sony 35 1.8 recently as well..and might bring that instead of the sigma if i do get it..(need a fast lens..in the mix...)


It depends on what and where you want to photograph. On my last trip to France  I used almost exclusively the SEL 18200 and most shots were taken in the range of 18 - 35. A few I took with the Sigma 30/2.8 . I don't think the 55-210 is necessary.

So my choice of the lenses you have now would be:

Sony 16-50, Sigma 30 and either the Pentax 50/1.4 or the Olympus 50/1.8 for low light situations.
