Thanks. A77 has far more Mp than A57. Doesn't it?

What about Tamron 200-500. It seems no OS though? But A57 has.


The A77 has 24Mp, the A57 has 16Mp. You might be able to find some A57+15-500 photos on flickr.

I chose the Sigma over the Tamron mainly for the built-in OS and HSM drive. The Tamron 200-500 is a screw-drive lens. It's a lighter lens (2.7 vs 4.2 lbs) and has a cool "Filter Effect Control" that allows you to rotate your polarizer with the hood mounted.
