Lens dilemma for A55-users help/comments needed
Nov 28, 2010

I am about to buy the A55-which seems to "tick all the boxes "for me and I hope with all you who have one(comments also invited)but I am somewhat in a dilemma as to which zoom lens to match with it.

Speed and IQ across all apertures are important to me-telephoto not so critical.Have been considering Tamron 17-50 and new Sigma 17-50 as build quality of Sony 16-80 seems to be of concern with image quality only on a par with say the Tamron.
Other alternatives;
1.Have a selection of prime lenses and if so which ones ,or
2.Get the "best"telephoto zoom lens
