    Without further information what you're shooting I'll have to default to the Zeiss Distagon 35mm f2 zf, based on the fact its the lens I would want if I could only have one.

    Hi, and Welcome!

    Good is easy (see post #2, above).

    The term; "all around" can mean almost anything.

    Most beginners think a zoom lens is the ticket to getting good shots in a variety of situations, but prime lenses often help the photographer "work with" his equipment to produce outstanding results.

    What does "all around" mean to you?

    The 24-70/4 S is great, and in my opinion pretty good value even if you didn't buy it as a kit-lens with your camera.

    For me it's a very versatile allround lens, sharp at every setting, really nice close focusing distance, small, light weight, weather sealed and f/4 is enough for most situations.

    But even though I love this lens, it's usually the 50/1.8 S that sits on my camera; the optics are just so good...and 50 mm is still a really nice allround focal length.

    I think the 24 to 70 Z mount would make a good first lens for your camera.
