Re: I shoot street and use the 16-80z

'People suggesting the 24-70 obviously don't shoot street - this lens is a beast and is totally unsuitable for street photography'

I have two Sony a55's one on a cz 24-70mm and one on a cz 135mm

To say they are beast's is spot on. The speed and focus (especially on the 135mm) is amazing. EXACTLY what you need for fast action spontaneous street photography. Bang bang...Shot in focus. quality. A beast is a MUST ...in my opinion.

Also, would like thoughts on upgrading to A77 or waiting for a FF (but probably without the specs difficult) will not be as fast for street photography.

NEX-7 with a 16mm I really wanted to get but no GPS is a deal killer...aaahhhhh
