Out of our middle of the road cost bracket we decided the Sony SEL35 F18 has to be the goto option. An excellent feature of this middle of the road lens is the compact and lightweight nature of it. Its optical lens is outstanding for both contrast and peripheral sharpness. The built-in image stabilization ensures that you can get shots on the go and the smooth sand silent high-speed nature of the focusing helps for the adventure photographer. Although not zoomable, this camera has autofocus that is outstanding and makes missing an excellent shot nearly impossible.
