a77ii or Tamron 150-600?
Jul 16, 2014

Looking for opinions, I have been shooting with the a65 for 2 and 1/2 years (96,000) clicks. I mostly shoot birds and have been using a minolta 100-400 lens. I love the a65 and have learned how to get the most out of the minolta 100-400. As a side note comparing the sony 55-200 to the minolta 100-400 at 200mm the minolta is much better. I realize this is comparing the long end of a lens to the middle range of the other lens but the Minolta just shines compared to the sony. Anyway I have the budget for either the a77ii or the tamron 150-600. I know the tamron is a little big for the a65 and it is not available yet. I will not have the budget to acquire both in the near future. I have been researching  both for a couple weeks and  trying to decide which one I would get the most benefit from in the next year.
