I hope that I am in the right section for this. I have a Sony A6000 but I think my dilemna or issues aren't specific to the manufacturer per say. I think they are related to being a new photographer and getting hung up on getting better gear or the all important sharpness that you just can't seem to get with kit lenses.
I have been shooting with 16-50mm and 70-210mm kit lenses since I bought the camera last year. I find that I am shooting a lot of wide angle shots in the 16-24mm range plus some shots in the telephoto range. I also occasionally shoot portraits, although its vary rare, I use the telephoto zoom for that since it is very pleasing on the face.
I would like to get some better quality lenses. I picked up the 10-18mm by Sony for wide angle and I also picked up a Zeiss Touit 32mm (F1.8) as well. I really like the sharpness from the primes but I really appreciate the flexibility of zoom lenses. I am thinking about returning the Zeiss Touit and getting the Sony Zeiss 16-70mm to replace both my 16-50mm kit lens and the Zeiss Touit. The 32mm is nice but it is just one focal length and I am not sure how much I would use it. I did use it for a portrait the other day and it came out amazing.
Now even after all of that, I start thinking that I broke my rule, which is not to buy and lenses that can't be used with a Sony full frame in the future. I think Tony says to buy crop sensor lenses for now and then sell the them when you actually go full frame instead of using full frame on a crop body.
Do I return the Zeiss Touit and the 10-18mm and just stay content with the kit lenses? Or is it justified to replace my current kit lens with the Sony Ziess 16-70mm? This way I would have a better quality zoom (I hope) and the 10-18mm wide angle and just stay put for a while. I think I would get a lot of use out of the both the 10-18mm and the 16-70mm. I would just keep the 70-210 kit zoom for telephoto.
Am I the only newbie photographer overthinking everything?? Any advice would be great?
