Hello everyone,

If you would be able to choose between those 2 kits, which one would you choose and why?

1. Sony A7 + Sony 16-35 f4 (or tamron 17-28 f2.8)

two nice (hypotheticaly on the tamron) BUT the original a7 has an ok sensor and is plenty useable but lacks a lot of things that really make it stand out from your a6000

2. Sony ARII + Sony 28mm f2 (or samyang 24mm f2.8)

body is FAR better. AF, IBIS, and sensor. Pass on the 24. It is a "fun" lens but Not very good

Both kits are around the same price, where the first one the body is cheaper than the lens and second one the other way around.

FYI: At the moment I travel with a a6000 with 10-18 as walkaround and 24mm 1.8 for evening/night/portrait. This could be used for travel and portrait.

are you going to keep it?

Curious to see your thoughts

Thank you!
