OK so I'm the recent new owner of an A77. I love the camera but the glass I have is marginal at best. I know the old adage of buy the best glass you can. so here goes Currently I have 3 lenses Listed below I want to upgrade lens #2 first. Budget is simple 500-1k

Lens 1: DT 1.8 50mm Prime SONY

Lens 2: Sigma 18-50mm f/2.8-4.5 DC HSM Zoom For Sony

Lens 3: Tamron 70-200mm f/2.8 Di LD (IF)

Here are my suggestions for each lens upgrade, obviously you need to research each lens more thoroughly and determine if its really right for you. You're right that Lens 2 is the first one that needs an upgrade. IMHO, the 16-50/2.8 lens is excellent, especially since its weatherproof to match your A77.

Lens 1: Sigma 50mm f/1.4 HSM (~$450)

Lens 2: Sony 16-50mm f/2.8 SSM (~$800)

Lens 3: Tamron 70-300mm f/4-5.6 USM (~$350 until 1/31/2013)
