Any lenses/equipment you regret buying?
Feb 4, 2010

I love my Sony camera.....I've never owned anything but a Sony, so I have no real frame of comparison, but I am very pleased with the a700.

I did buy two lenses that I could live without though.

I bought the SAL 18-250 and the Lensbaby 3.0 and wished I had saved my money for other things.

The 18-250 just seems a little soft for my liking. I now have a collection of lenses that covers this range and simply don't have much use for it. I'll probably sell it at some point.

The other lens that I am lukewarm on is the Lensbaby 3.0. Yes, it is unique, but for me, the focal point is too small. I also bought the macro kit with the lens and just haven't been able to get many nice shots with it. Could it be the photographer and not the lens? Absolutely. I am no pro, but I do think the lens is harder than it needs to be to use.

Just wondering if there are any lenses that you've purchased that you'd wished you saved your money for something else?
