    Thank You for the kind words, I got my Sony NEX-5r 3 weeks ago and I have been on forums and You Tube watching videos for endless hours trying to suck up as much information about photography as I can. Any advice on what my next lens should be?

    I am gonna have to Wikipedia everything you just said, because I don't understand 90% of photography language yet. Lol 35mm-50mm lens got it, will start looking into it now. I was thinking the Sony E 55-210mm f/4.5-6.3 OSS (SEL-55210 or Sigma 60mm F2.8 for mirrorless?

    Lol. Sorry about that, your pictures are so good I really thought you had all that covered already.
    The 55-210 is the natural complement to your 18-55. The 18-55 covers the "standard" zoom range, the 55-210 covers the "telephoto" (tele for short) zoom range.
    What I was advising was a "prime" lens, meaning fixed focal length, like the 30/3.5 that's in your signature. A prime is often optically better than a zoom (because it's easier to manufacture to higher standard for only one focal length, rather than having to make optical compromises to build a zoom), and has great teaching values because it forces a user to use their brains and feet, rather than just turning a zoom ring.
