A55 + Tamron 18-270mm PZD
In reply to Herts_JoaTMoN, May 25, 2011

For your uses the A55 would be fine. Get the new Tamron 18-270mm PZD because it has a in-lens focus motor that is quiet and pretty fast. Also owners say it is a bit better optically than the Sony 18-250mm (which doesn't have an in-lens focus motor). The new 35mm f1.8 would be a good companion since it is fast and also has a good, general purpose fov on APS-C. If you really want a macro then I would suggest something longer than the 30mm so you will have a bit more working space. You might check out the expensive Sony 100mm macro or the Tamron 90mm which is a bit less expensive.
