Alright well thanks a lot! Can anyone tell me best prime for people? The Minolta 50mm f 1.7 look tempting, and the beercan does too? If I where to have the 18-55 kit, and the two previously listed would I be good to go as an hobbyist?

If you shoot things like sports from the stands etc.

I would grab and Minolta 100-200 F4.5 It doesn't focus closer than 3M/9ft but for shooting from the stands focuses fast and is the size of a kit lens in design and from my use seems as sharp as the beercan.  And they sell for $60 on eBay
