Re: a6000: which lens to buy (kit or 16-70)

General life documentation - so birth certificates, drivers licenses, that stuff?

Buy the kit lens and see if you like it. It is very compact and has good IQ assuming you are not a lens snob. It is not the best build quality and is a cheap lens. If you decide you hate it, sell it and you have some very limited options.

B&H is still running the 16-70mm special so that is an option as $700 is as reasonable as you will get for the 16-70mm f4. You can get all three for $1500 if you want the option of the compact kit lens on some occasions.
