Lens choice for A65

Hi all

Am planning on picking up an A65 body only (Although I note that currently the kit lens can be had for about £15 more in Jessops so would be silly not to.

I am trying to decide on some lenses, my needs are a wide angle for landscape and a general walk around lens. Perhaps a short telephoto too. If one of the lenses had macro/close focusing capability that would be a bonus.

Budget could be up to £1000.

I quite fancy the Sigma 8-16 and the Sony 35mm 1.8. Although am mostly unsure about lens type, for example the A65 has IBIS and af motor(?) so I assume I wouldn't necessarily need lenses with those attributes?

Across frame sharpness is important to me. Thanks in advance.
