BorrowLenses Top 12 For The α6X00 Series

At BorrowLenses they know a thing or two about lenses and lens performance on various cameras. To that end, a new blog post lists their Top 12 lenses for the α6000, α6300 and α6500 APS-C mirrorless cameras.

"The 16-50mm is a decent place to start but other lenses can offer different perspectives, wider apertures, better bokeh, and faster autofocus. If you’re serious about photography you’re probably going to want to go beyond the kit lens." -Vivian Liu, BorrowLenses

At the top of their list are the E 10-18 f/4 OSS, E 16-70 f/4 ZA OSS, E 55-210mm f/4.5-6.3 OSS and the E 50mm f/1.8 OSS all of which are also in our E-Mount Sleeper Lenses article which you can see here.
