I agree with Chris. The kit lens is terrific. Sharp, steady and very well made. Is it the fastest, no, but for the money, you can't go wrong. I sue mine all the time, in conjunction with primes, as needs warrant. 'Nuff said.

Re: Initial Comments - 50/1.8 for weddings

Hi Rob

It also, of course, depends on what you are doing...with weddings when I'm in tight spaces, no time and rushing around then yes I need a quick lens with OSS and AF....If I'm shooting masterpieces like Noa does and have the time to set up the camera, use a slider or redo the shot a few times then a prime lens is the obvious choice!!

James is selling/has sold his stock lens so he obviously is doing stuff like Noa does only and doesn't have the need for a zoom or AF and can afford the time to not have to "shoot from the hip" like event guys do!

Re: Initial Comments - 50/1.8 for weddings

All I do is use a wide prime, my fisheye lens for the introductory shots of the venue and then a manual portrait prime for a few close up face shots.

Other than that Im always using my SEL18200 non-powerzoom lens which came with my VG20.

If I didn't own the SEL18200 I wouldn't have sold my SEL-P18200 which came with the EA50.

They are both identical. One has power zoom the other is a manual zoom. But both have autofocus and OSS.

I even kept the hood that came with the SEL-P18200 and use it on the SEL18200.

If I was being really picky, I would say the kit lens on the EA50 may be slightly sharper and more contrasty ... but nothing I have noticed. Only because it's newer tech do I say this.
