150-210 is what most people use for their normal lens...with the 210 most 
popular and cheapest.

210-300 for portraits... with most saying 240 is the lens to use....

90mm is about the most popular for wide angle......more moderns lenses are 
110 .....

But this is also bogus info.,,,, you must have enough room and flexibility 
on your "box" to handle  the movements you might expect......

The Piccolino seems to have a shift/rise lens mount only ( no bellows).  So 
there is no tilt.....
WHich means no architecture nor DOF workarounds..... you will be required to 
use smaller F-Stops for more DOF.

Interesting camera.....
