50/1.8 OSS - I do not need a mid zoom, but this is a really likable lens. Lovely bokeh.
These two will do like 80% of my photography. What I still lack is a travelzoom - and the 70-350G becomes more interesting all the time. But not yet completely convinced

I love my A6400 (and before the NEX F3 and A6000) for travel!

Hope the lock down ends soon and you can move to your new home. I hope every bodies lock down ends soon so we all can travel again. Stay safe

Yes Addy, thanks
for an Ultra wide I love my little Rokinon, it is super sharp and really like the pictures it takes. It has some CA and is a little quirky, but maybe 1/2 of my photos are w the lens and its pretty light and compact.
Your mid lens is a surprise, a prime. But I already have my Zeiss and have found that and the a6500 to be a great combo.
I guess we are both looking forward to that tele-zoom, can't wait to be taking photos of far away mountain tops and deserts and you know We equally love our cameras, I see. They are very powerful little guys, the OSS on mine is one of the main reasons I bought it, being a night shooter.   

Thanks on the lockdown. My irony is, according to the Johns Hopkins Global virus map, the place I'm moving to doesn't have a case within hundreds of miles, yet here in San Francisco I walk out my front door, I'm at risk.
On the other hand I wouldn't want to be responsible for introducing the virus in some way to the new community. (I haven't felt sick a day this year)
Stay safe addy and happy shooting

Hi Joe,

This is somewhat similar to the 'philosophy' I have taken recently. Whilst I take probably more gear than I really need, I tend to only ever carry/take with me whilst I am out and about 3 lenses:

Sigma 12-24
Sigma 24 - 70
Sony 70 - 400G Mk I

The latter is, perhaps, less 'carry friendly' than is ideal, but I can carry all this with me in a simple Sony Reporter bag without too much difficulty. Almost all the Utah images from 2018 were taken 'on the hoof' with just the first two lenses on board for example.

A useful link indeed and one to make all of us think about what is really 'necessary'.

Best regards, Neil.
My Mantra: "Comment on other's work as you would wish to have yours commented upon". Go on - it's fun!

I just came upon this vid and I thought I'd share it, because it spoke to me and my mantra:
"Keep it simple and travel Lite"
I'm about traveling/exploring and then photographing the adventure, I've traveled the country all my life. Here in the Wild West there is plenty of opportunity. The travel comes 1st and then the photograph
Like looking out at sunset from "Island in the Sky" or photographing the Milky Way on top of the Sierra's at 10,000ft can be pretty life changing. The photograph can help, to a point, relive that experience

The video is about this concept of photographing equipment.
The only 3 Sony Aps-c lens you Need.
My 3 would be the Rokinon Ultra Wide I already have and the middle lens the Zeiss 16 70mm I already have and the 3rd lens, I've been waiting for, for years. The Sony G badge tele-zoom 70 350mm
As soon as the travel Ban I'm under is lifted and I can move to my new home in the National Parks west area. Getting the 70 350 is going be priority 1

A totally Aps-c respectable camera, lens set, the camera being my a6500, has long been a goal, I have just been waiting on Sony.
I have found in my travels, the less baggage I have to carry around and worry about, the more I can concentrate on "Place"
thanks Coast
