A580 Lense Choice
Aug 11, 2011

Hi,

I have been looking for a replacement for my fabulous, but ageing KM 5D. I have decided on the A580 - it looks great and I can't find a bad wors=d about it. But I am all muddles with my lense choice.

My first thought was to go for 2 good lenses:

(I already have the good KM AF DT 11-18 lense)
an 18 to 70 something.
a 70 to 300 something.

But I have not been able to find an affordable solution. So now I am looking at the Tamron 18 to 250. But there are so many in this range, and I am confused as to which one I should fit. What about the otions from Sigma?

I currenty use the AF DT 18-200 probably 90% of the time. I don't want this on the A580 though as it is so horribly slow. It is also important to have the Internal Facusing to get both modes on the A580.

Any advice would be very welcome. Budget say US$ 1200 ish for camera plus lense(s).

I do this sort of stuff, plus a lot of people pictures. http://www.freewebs.com/mjdonline/
