Advice on new lens for Sony a57
Jul 21, 2012

I have just bought a new Sony a57 and have been using my very old Tamron 28-200. After some advice I've decided to replace it. I'm in no rush but when I buy one I'm after a versatile all in one. Shopping around and reading reviews I've come up with the Tamron 18-270 and Sigma 18-250. Most reviews focus on how these lenses work with Cannons or Nikons. There is a focus on the lens stabilization systems in the reviews also.

Can someone advise me on a good all round lens for my a57. Doesn't need to be one I've mentioned. Under $1,000. The purpose is holidays and some sports. This may be best served by two lenses but I'm hoping to get decent pics with a single lens.
