Re: a6000 new owner, confused and still learning

For charging, you should really get external wall charger. The USB charging just takes too long and is often inconvenient. You can buy third party battery chargers with addititional battery for under $50. I have had good success with Wasabai (look on Amazon). With external wall charger with additional batteries, you can just let it charge (takes several hours) while you use the camera and not worry.

Kit lens is more than good enough for newbies and most casual situations. It's more portable so it provides greater flexibility at the expense of some image quality.

Get a camera bag that is padded and waterproof. Smaller the better but think about what else you will be carrying in it. For instance, are you the type that carries numerous lenses or do you just have one or two? How many extra batteries will you be carrying? Etc.
