Help me out Sony Forum ...
Sep 15, 2012

... still agonizing over dslr purchase. Short list is Canon T4i or Sony A65. If I buy the Sony my agony is not over the model (am pretty well set on A65 for my needs), but over lens. Want very good quality all around lens for general purposes and it sounds like the kit 18-55 is not a stellar product. If I can get a comfort level consensus that the kit 18-55 is a good enough lens for my needs then I would be tempted to buy the A65 with the kit lens and pick up one of the more "reasonably" priced (to me) longer lenses to compliment bag after more agonizing evaluation.

Or would my money be better spent by buying A65 body only along with one of the quality all around lenses, eg Sony 16-50 (A77 kit) or 16-80Z?

Any and all advice appreciated! harry
