Re: NEED SOME HELP WITH LENS SELECTION

I toured Europe taking 600 shots a day with an a100 and a Minolta  70-210.  That lens was a great walkabout lens.  I took a 50mm 1.4 Minolta and used it for some landscape and indoors shooting.  I never suspected I could have more but this time I was away I used,

a99 with 70-300 walk around, with 30mm Sony and 50mm 1.4 Minolta.

I feel I got much better shots, but found the camera to be bulky, and it seemed it was 90% of my day, rather than the a100 which just seemed like a big P&S.

I tell myself the shots are forever, you forget, but then look at my a100 shots from 3 years ago and realise I got LOTS of amazing shots with that combo....

I could go back to the a100 but I would feel quite limited...
