another amateurish advice

You are stepping onto dangerous way if purchasing 135mm f/1.8 CZ lens.

I'm saying it, because IQ of this lens is head and shoulders better than zooms you use. On A700 it will not show as well as on FF camera body, but still bokeh quality in portraits will be as high as any professional portrait master could wish for.

Why is it dangerous? Because if you will love 135 f/1.8 IQ - you will sell all APSc zooms soon and migrate to FF system.

Person is taking photos, not camera. When photograph is bad, it's because photographer doesn't know how to choose settings optimal to "own preferences". Then blames camera for bad IQ.
This is same as blaming car about arriving to wrong destination.
