Re: Working my way "down". Could use some advice

I am just a bit older, and while I have my D600 - off to the doctor just now - I rarely carry the heavy stuff any more. I love my V1, and its weird layout, with the glorious 30-110, the wonderful 18.5/1.8, or FT1 adapter, and the AF-S 70-300 VR. The 10, and the 10-30, are not quite as good (the latter having been superseeded by the 11-27.5, which I guess is sharper). The new 10-100 is hopefully great, while the powered 10-100 didn't fare well in testing.

Just ordered the 6.7-13, which I know nothing about ;-)!

Have my NEX-5N, too, but only with the superb, Soy-made, Zeiss 1.8/24, and the Sigma 19/2.8, another utterly sharp lens!

For wide landscape shots the V1 is not the best of all, for macro, close-ups, and long teleshots, superb!

The V2 is another cat, entirely, though better organized - button-wise, not least - slightly faster sensor, higher resolution, and capable of higher ISO, but not as vibrant colors.
