Zoom, zoom, zoom. A good idea ?

The nex6 sensor deserves something resolving better. So my bid would be:

- get the E-mount 55-210. It is cheap, and rather good when stopped down to F8. Stabilized.

- get the pancake 16 mm F/2.8 plus the UWA adapter: giving 12 mm focal length. Zoom is not very important with such a wide lens. Image quality is not worse with the UWA.

These two will extend your working range and creativity.

- get one prime lens and evaluate using manual lenses. To me Nex6 is unique for that. I can recommend one with 24 to 40 mm focal lenth. But get a very sharp one to use the image sensors full capacity. It would be economically wise to get a legacy one. I can recommend a Olympus Pen F 38 or 40, since the adapter is tiny.

Just my 2 cents.
