Re: NEED SOME HELP WITH LENS SELECTION

I don't think I saw the Minolta 28-135 f4-4.5 mentioned. This lens is very, very sharp (especially for a walk-around). This works very well with the 24mp sensor of the a65 or a77.

It is built like tank and focuses quickly. It also has an interesting Macro mode that allows the lens to almost touch your subject.

It does have a few quirks that take a little getting used to like how it handles (or rather doesn't) bright lighting sources outside the scene. You basically have to get an aftermarket lens hood to go with it.

The other frustrating quirk is the minimum focus distance when not in the special MF only Macro mode.

But if you are willing to work with its small weaknesses, this lens will produce some outstanding pics.
