    Hi everyone,

    I'm new to this forum and i'm hoping to get some good advice here. I enjoy taking pictures and i'd like to start learning about photography. I've only owned point and shoots and i'm gonna buy the Sony NEX 5 this week.

    I don't know any technical terms and i'm hoping to learn more things once i get that camera and eventually move to a DSLR in the future.

    Well, my question is the Sony Nex 5 comes with 2 lenses i.e a 16 mm and an 18mm.

    Considering money is not a problem, i'm willing to buy both lenses but i don't know what i'll need the lenses for. When will i use the 16mm or the 18mm.

    What are the situations, where i'll need to use those lenses. I read that the 18mm is a zoom lens. But does that mean there's no zoom on the pancake lense?

    I'll be taking pictures of landscape and portraits, mostly holiday pictures.

    Should i get both lenses?
    What are the use of each lense?

    Please help! Thank you!
