Re: Next toy; macro, flash, or prime?

I'll second what George says. I have the A77 also, and bought it with the 16-50, which I love! I made the mistake of buying the 18-250, thinking it would be a nice all-round lens, before I understood the limitations of making a lens with a wide zoom range (this was my first interchangeable lens camera). I still use it when I need >50mm, but the results are nowhere near as sharp as the 1650 through much of the range. If I were doing it again I wouldn't bother with the 18-250 and I would get a zoom that didn't go so wide to go with the 16-50. I know that's not quite what you're asking for, but the 16-50 my double up and give you what you're looking for out of a prime.
