35mm or around prime ? Very easy.

AF : SEL35/1.8 NO question asked, awesome lens.

MF  PEN F 38/1.8. NO question asked, even better lens, very compact, cute, thin adapter, wickedly sharp wide open, gorgeous character. Peaks very well. Around 200$.

Sigma 30/2.8, not for me (too wide, too slow, very slow AF, not enough DOF control, etc). But it thousands of followers, so it must be some good....

If you're tired of starting over, stop giving up.

Bit the bullet and bought the NEX-6 with 16-50mm kit lens today on amazon for 898. Not a bad price, it dropped 100 all of a sudden. D5100 on the way back. Going to get the wasabi charger and batteries, don't want/need a case for now, and will look to get a normal 35mm lens. Perhaps the sony SEL35/1.8 or PEN 38/1.8. Will also try to add a wide-angle after, but so far 16mm of kit lens should do fine. I hear/read the 16mm is not much better than the kit lens at 16mm, although it is available for $150 used and is tiny which is a huge plus. As for the long lens that I intend to use not very often at all, will keep my Nikkor 55-200 and buy a Nikon adaptor to see how that works out. What sort of SD card should I buy to get the most of this camera? Size is going to be 16gb or 32gb.
