Definitely the 16ish to 55ish 2.8. I used a 17-50 2.8 Tamron with my A700 and it hardly ever came off of the camera. My sel3518 is now my primary lens, and I hardly ever use the kit zoom. I faster normal zoom would become my walk around lens with the 35 being used strictly for low light situations.

That 55-150 is going to cost quite a bit.

If the 55-200 is $349, I would suspect the 55-150 F2.8 to go for at least $999 (and that's being optimistic).

Exactly, and since the only time I really use the telezoom, I'm outside and don't really need the extra light, the expense wouldn't make it viable for me. Maybe if I was doing indoor wedding photography or something.

I would pay 500ish for a 17-50 2.8 emount. Anything more than that wouldn't be worth it for me.
