Lens Selecton for A65/A77
Nov 3, 2011

Hi all

i was a lilttle confused between APSC sensors and Full frame sensors. Another member here pointed out that for lenses the standards for describing focal length is always in the 35mm format ( not apsc) - even though a lens cant be used for full frame cameras...

so im well and truly confused here... i am new to the photography world.

id like to select a lens ( for APSC)... that has a field of view that is wide angle and moderate telephoto...

for e.g. 16mm to 85mm (in APSC terms!)

so what specs in 35mm terms should i be looking for?

i like the sigma 17-70 HSM lens but that is like 24mm to 105mm APSC equivalent...

Any thoughts here and recommendations are appreciated.

cheers

B
