Re: seeking some advice regarding a purchase

Yes, I have been going back and forth over the 18-55 vs the 18-135. I have a Sony hx9v and don't think I used a lot of the longer focal lengths. Of course I didn't because I wasn't very happy with the results when I did.

I am worried about the 18-55 not having enough focal length for a walk around lens and having to switch lens to often. But until I get it and try it out, I am unsure.

Then I think that the 18-135 wr would be a good lens to get first and see what focal lengths I use. Then make a decision on how much to invest on a telephoto lens, which prime I may get the most use of, and if a wide angle lens may be of use to me.

Of course, I may end up with a 18-135 and a 55-300 and spend way more money when a 18-55 and 50-200 may have been a fine setup for me (and not as heavy/large).

Not easy being clueless ....and poor.
