My A77 Kit
Oct 31, 2011

I have just recieved my A77 last Friday. Of course since then its been really bad weather, heavy cloud, drizzle and rain.

Anyway I just wanted to share what I have purchsed, and what I hope to use it for. I would like to invite comments on my choice too. (hopefully nice ones :-))

My Kit now compises a Sony A77, purchased body only. a Sony F3.5 - F6.3 / 18-250 mm Lens and a a Tamron F5 - F6.3 200-500 mm lens. I have a Velbon Rup 42 momopd ans a Gorillapod.

My primary interest is in wildlife and birds, so I have hoping my lens choice with cover all bases.

However I have also photographed butterflies and dragonflies, and I suppose to continue doing so I will need a macro lenes. I havent thought much about that yet, but any ideas from other A77 owners would be appreciated.

I should also add that I have just upgraded from an Olympus E620 Kit) with a Zuiko 70-300 mm zoom.
