Can't decide which lenses for the Alpha
May 15, 2007

Ugh! So many reviews with different answers.

I am trying to decide which to buy:

Tamron 18-250 Good lens but not much use indoors.

Cheap set of Sigmas 18-70/70-300 Not as good overall as above but better indoors.

Used Minolta AF 28-70/70-300 The silver ones for $100-150

The only conclusion I'm sure of is that I don't want the Sony kit lens with a plastic mount. I think the CZ 18-70 ($700) and the Tamron 17-50 ($450) anre both great lenses but with a telephoto I'm way over budget.
