My CZ16-80 is perfect, size, weight, sharpness and color.

I bought the 70-300G lens, which is way huger and look quite akward when I put it on my A55.

Although, both are making me happy and I don't find a need at the moment to invest in some other lenses.

You can see my gallery, I have a few photos there.

I am very happy with my 16-80 now that it's fixed. Like you say perfect size and range.

I am soooo torn between the 70-300G and the Tamron 70-300 USD which are supposed to be very close in terms of optical performance which is the the most important aspect for me as it's primary use will be landscape. But the 70-300G is really expensive at the moment and the Tamron is a fraction of the price.

I am watching a used 70-300G on ebay at the moment but I am not prepared to pay over £450 for it. I can get the Tamron for £277 brand new.

Nice images by the way
