Hi all, looking for some advice!

I have the SEL1650PZ and the original SEL18200 for my NEX 6. My question to you is, is it worth getting the 24mm Zeiss when I can take 24mm shots using the two lenses I already have? Will the picture quality be that amazing in comparison that it warrants spending $950 on a new 24mm lens?

I apologize in advance if this comes across as a silly question. So far I have read reviews where the Zeiss 24mm produces amazing shots. While I am sure this is true - Is there really a huge difference?

Image quality with the 24mm Zeiss will be significantly better than shooting with either of those zooms set at 24mm. Whether it is worth the money or not depends upon how frequently you need that focal length. Perhaps you should review past photos to see how often you're close to that focal length.
