I hope I've posted this on correct forum.
I'm new to the forum and very new to photography. I have always been a Sony fan (having all Sony products - TV, phone, tablet, laptop, etc...). I've had a couple of Sony point and shoot camera's in the past (for pure convenience) until Christmas - my partner bought me a shiny Alpha A3000. Now, I appreciate that on the grand scale of things this is pretty much a 'basic' level piece of kit, but I have been more than happy so far with it, even though so far I haven't wandered far from the intelligent settings. To solve that issue I am looking at trying a basic photography course to help me familiarise myself with the less basic features.
The advise I am after (at this time - I am sure many more questions will follow in time), is this. Other than the lens that came with the camera - 18-55mm (which appears to take a good variety of pics), I am looking to buy an additional lens, maybe up to the £200 mark, but have no idea which spec lens to go for. Ideally I'd like another lens that will afford a variety of shooting styles. As I say, I'm a complete novice so any advise will be much appreciated.
