currently having some dilemma here. I am currently looking to get a all in one lens for walk about purpose, but had this consideration of buying a new pns with 14x capability instead, as a lens of 18-2xxmm range is about $600-800 (iirc), and a new pns is about that price too.
The reason for looking for such a lens is the convenience of having a jack of all trades lens when traveling or having a walk about. I can also practise more with my camera, familiarizing with the quirks/limitations of my camera system.
What goes in favour for a pns is the fact that I have another camera for situations where a DSLR is not practical to carry to a place. Plus, in the situation where I run out of battery for my DSLR, i have a backup pns that should cover everything. In getting a pns, I will probably stick a 50 f1.8 lens to my DSLR.
What are your thoughts of this? All recommendations are welcomed
