I am contemplating to eventually switch from Canon DSLR to a mirrorless. Honestly I only picked Nex over other systems because the price on this camera was relatively low so I figured if I try and don't like it, I can always sell it for same $ or keep it for travel. In just over a week of using it I think I am seeing both the good sides (good DR, good low light performance, good resolution) and bad sides (very few decent e-mount lenses, total lack of a good standard zoom with IQ comparable to DSLR world, slow AF). So, for now, it seems NEX would only work out for me if I get decent MF lenses (which is where peak focusing should come handy). I am shooting mainly the photos of my kids / family and sometimes architectural / landscape. On Canon side, I was getting by with Sigma 17-50/2.8 OS as a main walkaround lens / vacation lens, Canon 85 1/8 as dedicated portrait prime, and Tamron 70-300 VC for tele shots (barely used this one). On Sony side, I currently have: SEL 18-50 /3.5-5.6. I am not very thrilled with it, to be honest. It's OK for a kit lens, but nowhere near the IQ I got used to with Sigma, at least in less than perfect light. SEL 50/1.8 which I bid on as soon as I got the camera. I think it will fulfill the portrait lens niche, and can be a decent walkaround lens for when I don't need wide angles, the only problem with it is the slowish AF. I would like to get advises on these lenses : 1) A decent sharp all purpose zoom. Needs to be sharper than SEL1850, with good bokeh and contrast / color. Someone suggested Minolta MD 35-70/3.5 Macro. Seems like a nice lens, but the range is not as wide as I would like. 2) A tele that could double as portrait lens. So again, a nice sharp lens with good bokeh. Someone on CL is selling Minolta MD 35-70/3.5 Macro and 70-210/4 (this one is missing a hood). What do you think about these two, and how much should I offer (assuming they are in good optical and mechanical shape) ? This is not quite local - would have to drive for 40 min to meet him - so I don't want to waste my time unless it's really good lenses and a good deal. Although, I would much rather get something that could be also adapted to my Canon T3i.
