The Wirecutter has just updated their list of "The First Sony E-Mount Lenses You Should Buy". Writing for the Wirecutter, Amadou Diallo presents a list of lenses for photographers who are ready to move beyond the kit lens hat came with an α6000 or α6300.

"If you’re ready to move beyond the kit lens that came bundled with your camera, we have choices that will let you take sharper photos at night, shoot detailed close-ups of tiny objects, catch all the action of your weekend warrior, create professional-looking portraits, and capture dramatic landscapes."

The Wirecutter's writers are noted experts in their field who seek input from a variety of other authorities. Amadou Diallo is a photographer, author, and journalist who also teaches classes at the International Center of Photography. For the updated E-Mount lens article, Diallo references sources from DPReview.com, DxOMark, Imaging-Resource, ThePhoblographer, Photozone, PopPhoto and more.

"In researching for the latest version of this guide, I pored over spec sheets for Sony’s entire E-mount lens lineup, read more than 50 reviews, and took our final picks out for some real-world shooting." -Amoud Diallo, The Wirecutter.
