Re: A58?

All the A58s seem to come with the kit (18-55).  I have not seen any "body only" cams on the market.  I do like an all in one for basic walk around and would consider the Sony 18-135.  Would I be better off with the 16-105 or ?  I would probably pick up several primes and/or something in the 17-50 range 2.8 constant.  I do need and want a WA zoom (sigma 10-20 or ?).  I do not shoot much telephoto, but I would probably pick up a Tamron 70-300 or ?. Please keep in mind that I am on a limited budget and whatever I do will be funded by sale of some Nikon equipment.  All this hinges on viewing image samples, reading reviews and (hopefully) handling the camera before purchase (nothing is worse then the regret you feel when you buy a camera and find out that you just don't want to take it along.  It is kind of like a pair of shoes that neither fit nor are comfortable).

All question marks are open for opinion and advise.  Again, my budget is fairly limited and there is no sense discussing glass that cost more then $700.00.  As far as primes, is there any old Minolta glass I should consider?

I didn't find A58 body on b&h but I think it'll be more affordable to get A58 kit (600$) and use the "buy together and save" offer to save 200$ on 18-135 (so it'll be 300$) and then you can sell the kit lens and heve the A58+18-135 for 900$(minus the amount you will sell 18-55 for )
