The Kit Lens

I'm going to Europe soon and I'm toying with the idea of bringing my NEX 6 and only one lens -- the Zeiss 24mm 1.8.

I also have the 50mm 1.8 and the kit lens available to me.

It sounds like this is your first trip to Europe and you'll mostly be in cities. I'll suggest the 16-50 mm kit lens for your NEX-6 as it's much more versatile, the IQ isn't bad, and it's no heavier or larger than the CZ-24.

A lot of times I find that I can't get far enough from something I want to shoot and the wide end of the zoom works well for me. And panorama really isn't the same as wide angle.
