Sigma 19mm is the best budget prime lens for NEX 5R

Hi Kellie0

Just get a Sigma 19mm F2.8, price new on ebay around $150US. It's far sharper then the kit zoom. You may also want to check this out.

The following pic was NEX5R + Sigma 19mm F2.8. Just JPG straight out of cam, resized for posting. The kit zoom was no where near as sharp. This Sigma is also very nice on skin tone, a bit warmer .... it is so sharp edge to edge. Others may have different opinion.

Good luck with your choices.
