A-mount telephoto zoom recommendations for NEX
1

Hi there! I'm a NEX user looking for a budget telephoto zoom to use via the LA-EA2 adapter. I've done some extensive search through dyxum but unfortunately can't make up my mind

I also own an E-mount 55-210, which works fine, is light-weight, and has lens stabilization as the NEX lacks it. Using an A-mount lens alongside adapter is going to give me a heavier combo without stabilization; in return what I want is PDAF so I can shoot action/sports, longer reach, or larger apertures (but at the same time not exceedingly heavy).

so any recommendations for my purposes? thanks!

options I have looked for: minolta 70-210 3.5-4.5, minolta 100-200 4.5, minolta 100-300, tamron 75-300, sony 75-300
