    Hello,

    Just stumbled upon this site, looks like there is a wealth of knowledge and experience to read through!

    I currently have a 5r with the pancake 16mm kit lens as well as various legacy lenses. The lens I like the most is a Minolta 58mm 1.4, it takes great pictures.

    Any suggestions for an all purpose lens to take to Disney world later this year? Unfortunately money is a concern and I would prefer to stay at $300. I have been reading about the sel55210 a bit and am uncertain. Any suggestions?

    Thanks again!
    Sean

    Hey Sean, welcome to the forum. The Min 58/1.4 is well regarded here. The 55-210 is a good lens in good light, but it might be a little too slow to use inside/after dark. You should be able to pick up something like a Tamron 28-75 f/2.8 for less than $300 used. It's a AF lens, but it works well in manual focus on the NEX. Several options in this general lens category worth looking at.
