    keep the camera i have (a95) and buy a lens to add on,
    buy a different camera, one with a larger lens already.

    this question may seem dumb and pointless, but, i'd like to see what everyone else has to say about it. Would it be senseless to purchase a whole new camera souly for the purpose of a better lens?

    The options to add to what you have are extremely limited. If that camera does what you need it to then carry on. If it doesn't then you need to make an assessment of what sort of photography you want to do, then people here can offer advice.

    In regards to a lens, larger can mean a great many things. The reason many people go down the SLR route is so that they can select lenses that suit their type of photography. When you talk about larger, do you mean a greater focal length (zoom in closer to things further away?)

    It's senseless to purchase things you don't need (doesn't stop me though), your post doesn't tell anyone much about what you need.
