Kit lenses or negotiate?
Apr 26, 2013

I'm looking to get the A57 and one package has kit lenses 18-55mm and 55-300mm, another package has 18-55mm and 55-200mm. The person in the store said I'm better to save my money and just get the 200mm because 300 isn't that much more in real terms. Would you agree?

Second part to my qn: am I better to try and negotiate for something different to the kit lenses altogether? Seems to me that something like 18-200 or at least 18-135mm would be more useful as less changing of the lenses (55mm just seems to me to be too mid-range, Ill always be changing lenses surely??)

Thanks in advance

Sony SLT-A57
