Gulp. I just bought an A850
Oct 22, 2011

Yes, after months of reading everything in sight about the A77, then playing with one in a store (very nice) I just bought an A850, as new mfr refurb from a decent retail store for a good price.

I hope I'm not mad. I figured it's my last chance to buy a good FF camera at a relatively low price and get a very different shooting experience from my A55.

So, tips welcome, this is my first FF experience. And I only have one FF lens (Tamron 90mm Macro) so good value lens recommendations gratefully received. Probably general walkaround for now as I'm thinking the 90mm will cover portrait as well. I'm thinking Min 28-135 for example. I will gradually build up the Zeiss collection but I'm on a value hunt for now...

Long tele will wait for now, I have that covered on the A55 and at some point I want a 70-400G, or Tamron 70-300. However, if there are any must have bargains out there, I'm all ears!

I'm in the UK by the way.
