Harold,

sorry but I think this can't be left uncommented.

The Sony Zeiss ZA series primes are amongst the very best out there
and themselves the only reason to buy an Alpha DSLR for many. They
are expensive though.

Also, talking about Macro lenses, the Sony 100/2.8 AF Macro, a design
taken over from Minolta, is regarded as probably the best 100 mm
class macro of any brand. However, in this class there isn't much
between them; a Tamron 90/2.8 Macro will usually do its job just as
good.

In any case, it sounds a bit weird to me that you claim the Sony
primes to be inferior and in the next sentence declare Sigma (!!) and
Tamron to be pretty good. Have you ever tried a Minolta or Sony prime?

Regards,

Johannes
