Is it worthwhile for Noobie to get CZ 16-80mm f3.5-4.5?
Dec 20, 2009

Hello everyone,

I just picked up a Sony A500 a week ago.

My primary objective was to shoot pics of the lil guy, but I'm really feeling the photography bug right now and want to learn more and do more with my camera.

I have got the kit lens and also picked up a Minolta Maxxum 50mm f/1.7 prime lens.

I'm deciding about getting a used CZ 16-80mm f3.5-4.5 lens, but have also been swayed by the arguments for the Sony 16-105mm f/3.5-5.6 or the cheaper Sigma 17-70mm f/2.8-4.5.

Is it worth it for me to go directly for the CZ lens?

I don't have too much time to devout to photography yet and thus shoot mainly with LV.

At this point I'm not really looking to spend more than $500 or so for another lens. Thus, I would be buying a used CZ off of Ebay.

I hate getting buyer's remorse and thus want to make my next lens purchase correctly.

So, which lens would you get to shoot pics of the lil guy?

Thoughts?

Thanks!
