Re: Can't decide which lenses for the Alpha

Thanks for the suggestion. That's what I had in mind. I know where to find a mint Minolta 50mm f1.7. Now I'm trying to decide between the Tamron AF 70-300 F4-5.6 Di LD Macro 1:2 or the Sigma 70-300 APO. Both are about the same price. My impression is that the Tamron is a better built but the Sigma (being APO) probably has less CA.

I got over my phobia about the 'plastic' mount when I found out it's actually polypropylene which is what CD's/DVD's are made of. It's very durable.

I'm so excited! Now after all the frenzy of shopping is nearing an end I can actually start taking some pictures with this wonderful camera.
