Zoom Lens to replace 18-70 kit lens
May 22, 2010

I am considering buying a second hand 28 to 200mm sigma or tamron zoom lens to give me grewater flexibility when I travel. I don't have the budget currentl for new gear. I have an A200 with 18-70 and 70-300 kit lens and a Tamron 90mm f2.8 macro (which I bought following advice from this forum - many thanks)

What would be a good lens option for me which can remain in my kit for many years. I have the opportunity to get a sigma 28-200 but it will only focus manually. Should I be put ff by this? I want to buy a reasonable lens that takes good images. Ii don't envisage blowing them up to a great degre - max A4 size. I tend to like sharp images.

your comment and advice is appreciated.

regards

Tel
