Should I buy a6300+SELP1650 for $600 or a7ii body for $800?

1 year 1 month ago #617132 by Yaku
Hello! It will be my first camera. I want it mainly for still photos and some video shooting with my family. I am 99 % determined to buy the a7ii, but yet not completely sure. If so, which lens do you recommend for a7ii? I'd like to start with one that's as versatile as possible.
I've taken a look at these two, but I am not sure which is better as they have almost the same price (I am Japanese, sorry):
SIGMA Standard Zoom Lens 0.71–1.4 inches (18–35 mm)
Tamron SP 24-70mm F/2.8
Thank you so much!

Obviously the A7ii is a better camera, so it basically comes down to budget. What lenses do you want/need and how much do they cost? If you get a full frame camera, that could mean dropping a grand every time you want a different lens, whereas the APS-C lenses are far more affordable.
