I want a fast lens but cant afford most. So I have a question for people to answer...
Nov 26, 2011

I wish to have a fast lens. I have on my wishlist a Sony or Tamron 70-200mm 2.8 but can't afford one today. I think I would like to get a Tamron 28-75mm 2.8 but I already have the Sony kit lens 18-55mm...

Here's the question...will the 20 more in focal length really matter that much?

I use the kit lens at its furthest length a lot so I figure I need more length. I have a trip to Disneyworld planned for Christmas and want a fast lens for that trip. I don't like to use flash much and hence the want for a fast lens.

Any other suggestions for lenses would be helpful.

My kit:
SLT-A55VL
18-55mm F3.5-5.6SAM
