Re: Silent lens for a57 video?

Thanks does the mic from sony has a buil in wind noise cut like the pro mics (the foam protection)? it looks really light weight and I don´t like the sony a57 mic sound compared with my olympus e-pl1.

The sony 16-50 is quite cheap for what it offers but still expensive in the 550 euros price...  for that value maybe the sigma 17-50 is better since it has OS and HSM too.

Does someone recommend a 24-70 or  tamron 28-75 or any minolta lens in the mid range that is silent and has quite fast aperture?

the change in brightness is what worrys me.

Does an external mic reduces the sound produced by the motor of a tamron 17-50? or a sigma 17-70?

Its for wedding video and steadycam like video so at the short end the lens doesn´t need to be fast but if I want to use it on tripod in a church it should be at most f4 at the long end
