Being just a couple of months new to micro stock , with 100 250 clips and photos up, depending on the site, I have some small sales that have profited me with about 160$ for now.
I currently use a Canon G7X but decided to go with the Sony A6300, mostly for 4K.
Although widely covered, I mostly do travel work and need a small and light camera.
Being a video editor in the most popular Greek TV station, I come around various equipment, from broadcast recordings to cameras like a C200 and know the details of post production.
Reviews suggest that the kit lens (16-50mm) of a Sony A6300 blurs in the wide setting and only sharpens in the middle, when closing f stops to the right.
I need a lens with a smooth power zoom slider.
Should I go for a Sony E PZ 18-105mm f/4 G OSS or a Sigma or Tamron, always at a price of no more than 600$?
Finally, is this wide setting blur, visible in photos, also visible on video? If you have a wide lens but need to zoom in to avoid blurriness you are already limited by your camera.

I used this lens power slider with my A6000. It's not very good when shooting video since it stops zooming in 16 and 50 quite hard. Any stop in the middle is still ok though. You would be using some middle f-stops anyway because this lens has variable maximum aperture between 16 and 50. This lens is quite fragile as I've been told at Sony service station after having my lens repaired once.

Seems like Sony just came out with the A6500, which is $400 more expensive, but has OIS. I would wait out on the A6300 though, as there might be a price cut.

6300 has to touch screen to adjust focus points, but newly anounced 6500 has both a touch screen in in camera 5 axis stabilization, I would wait
