Re: Thinking of buying the Sony 18-135 lens

I'm relatively new to the Sony SLT cameras, with an A57.  Because of past experience with the Canon 18-135 IS, and earlier with the Sigma 18-125, I went for the Sony 18-135 in combination with the Sony 55-300.  I am extremely pleased with both lenses in all respects.  Note the very large range of overlap with these two lenses.  That really minimizes the amount of lens swapping you need to do.  Something for you to consider.

I like cgarrard's thoughts on a "better" lens (16-135 f/2.8-4) but it will be large, heavy, and expensive.  As it is, both my lenses handle very well on the A57 body; which is just big enough.
