Sony a57 used with 15y/o Tamron 28-200
Jun 29, 2012

I recently bought the Sony a57 after a 15 year vacation from photography. I've attached my old Tamron 171D 28-200 3.8-5.6. I'd really appreciate someone who knows lenses and cameras to give me some advice. The question is whether using this old lens will limit the photos I can get with the modern camera. I think mdern lenses send a lot more information to the camera. I like all in one lenses for travelling and would love the versatility of the new Tamron 18-270 but can't justify the expense if the 28-200 will cut the mustard.
