Thanks to all for the advice, will look into some of the other options mentioned. I am encouraged that the primes I have (plus a wide for astro) will be a good starting place.

Thanks to Jonathan Robson for the A6000, this will be a good intro point into digital. I am sure this will be a keeper (if for no other reason than) to go light/small with the tiny Leica 35 lens. This will also allow me to bpatient (pun intended, great screen name) with which full frame I go with. I had a chance to do a little night sky shooting while on vacation out west and have caught that bug... a full frame is definitely in my future.

I suppose the next quest will be a good zoom that will take advantage of the autofocus capabilities of the A7xxxx. Which ones stand out? I am thinking 135 and below, primarily because I have never had anything longer.

If you like shooting primes also which sounds like you do, you can’t beat the 24-105 f4 (image stabilized) to complement fast primes, fabulous versatile lens.
