I expected to see a lot of votes or the 18-250(ish) lenses and the something to 50mm F/2.8 lenses, but I'm surprised there are so few votes for the CZ16-80 and Sony 16-105mm lenses.

I used to have a Tamron 18-250 and have very recently bought the 18-270 version. It's everything everybody says it is, but the CZ 16-80 is still better.

I'm also pleasantly surprised to see a number of people going with the inexpensive 35mm F/1.8 prime lens. What a great little lens that is, SAM motor, plastic mount and all. I bought a copy when I read Sony would be increasing lens prices, and I'm really glad I did.
