Eyeballing an A77 buy, zoom lens options?
9 months ago

I think with the deal on the A77, i may fork out the change on next paycheck. That much goodness packed with a battery grip is a great deal. My only concern is a zoom lens. I would be picking up the 35 F1.8 for a standard walk around, the Sigma 70 macro for a macro/portrait, not sure about my WA yet. The zoom side is where im a bit lost.

I do have the 75-300 already, and i have a 1.4 TC. Problem is the 75-300 is fairly soft past 135mm, and i won't have the budget for the spendy G lenses likely ever. So im looking at the 55-200 as a possible match with my TC (or even a 2x TC). From the lens reviews i have read, that lens looks decent even at 200mm and the price is right, anybody here have first hand info though? I will likely do more birding than anything but nothing too serious.

Sony SLT-A77
