I have a nex 5r which came with the 18-55 kit zoom. I have also purchased the sel 35 macro (and love it) I'm lightly contemplating my next lense. I've thought about the 55-210 zoom but not sure if I would use it that much. It would have been nice to have at the zoo, but otherwise I don't find myself wishing for a longer lense that much. The SEL 35 macro lense has gotten some pretty harsh reviews when using it as a regular prime, but I don't know if I am sophisticated enough to notice it in my photos. Poor stats in a lab is one thing, visually noticeable results might be another. I've thought about a fixed length wide angel maybe, but thats under the idea that the quality of a fixed 20 mm for example would be so much better than the 18-55 zoomed out. A lower F stop would be nice yes, but not sure otherwise if the differences would be that much worth it. Perhaps if someone posted comparasin shots of the 18-55 zoomed out vs a fixed wide angle the differences and merits could be demonstrated. thoughts?
