Re: Europe with One Lens

I am about to do Europe with the Nex-7. Did it also last year and took the Zeiss 24 and the SEL-18200 18-200. I found this to be a useful combination, often leaving the 18-200 on the camera, but when light became poor, or I wanted the superb quality of the Zeiss for a special shot, or I was just doing street shooting or wanted to be less conspicuous I just took the Zeiss. The Zeiss is a great walk-around lens but I found that it was sometimes a bit wide, and lack of OSS was a bit restrictive. I have just acquired the SEL3518 OSS and love it, so will take that with me this trip along with the others and see what works best. Personally I would not want to rely only on a 24mm prime for the varying scenes you might be be faced with in Europe.
