Re: D5100 user considering NEX-6

The D5100 is not yet a sunk cost as it is within the return period so it would cost me nothing to get rid of the body. Still seems like an expensive setup:

$1000 for body + kit lens

$800 for 10-18mm

$250 for 16mm

$300 for 50mm

$1000 for Zeiss 24mm

$450 for 35mm

$350 for 55-210mm

Cheapest combination would be body + kit lens + 35mm + 16mm + 55-210mm ~ $2000. More like $3k if I want the 10-18mm. Usually I would buy used, but not much is available with the Sony NEX system.

My Nikon gear (D40+18-55mm+35mm+55-200mm) might fetch me about $400ish. So yes agreed, is an expensive move. Keeping my Nikon D5100 and buying a wide angle zoom costs me $1000 so in the end I would be spending an extra $1k more than I would with the SLR setup - is it worth it?
