What do you think of the older sony 75300 vs the tamron sp 70300, is it worth double the price?

The Tamron 70-300mm USD is exceptional for the price, it blows all the consumer level(under $300) tele zooms out of the water. There is currently a $100 rebate making it just $350 as well from Adorama/B&H.

Its a lens you won't have to worry about upgrading, many compare it favorably to the $1000-ish Sony version. When you think of it that way, $350 is a steal.

For a portrait lens, pick up a:
Minolta 50mm 1.7
Sony 50mm 1.8
Minolta 50mm 1.4(Sony version is the same lens, Minolta sells for less used).
Sigma 50mm 1.4

Pick whichever one fits your budget, all are great, and you pretty much get what you pay for.
