    I will be doing product reviews and some talking head things. Room is decently lit, but I may still add additional lighting. What would be a good lens for the a6000 ? Currently only have to kit lens, I was thinking about the 35mm f1.8 OOS

    I would op more for a zoom lens as it will allow more flexibility. While getting one with an actual motor for video zooms is expensive. I have found being careful with practice I can manually zoom medium distances with my 28-70.

    Maybe an aesthetics question but wide and even medium shots don't do it for me with youTube. I'm normally viewing it as a window on a laptop, not full screen, so while I'm listening to the audio I like tight macro shots to actually see what button or piece of equipment the audio is actually speaking about.
