Re: Nex6 vs Nex7N? Should I wait?

I'd say go for the SEL35. Great for low light and portraits. When travelling, I hardly used the 55-210 although that 1% of the time when I used it was like godsend. OTOH, the 35 is fast(er) focussing,  OSS and well built and very compact. 50 a bit too long And not useful for travelling. Sigma 19 is going with me on my next trip with the SEL35 and 55-210 though. 1650 will be the backup lens. The 19 is a bit characterless for me ancart prefer the SEL16 with UWA adapter but taking a typical tourist shot with it makes everyone in it look distorted.

Hmmm, back to the 35. I think this lens makes my Nex 6 work more like a DSLR. The others more in PnS category. Shoot RAW, don't be ashamed to use Face Detection in A mode and try that 10FPS feature!
