Thanks a bunch for the info. Lots of good stuff there. I actually did just buy the body+grip deal from B&H and should have it next Monday, assuming no weather delays and what not. I will have to look at the 16-50 for the future since I can only afford a cheap(er) lens right now. Thanks.

There's always a catch. Life is a catch. You better catch it while you can.

"Lenses together with the body:

  • A77 + 16-50mm f/2.8 kit $1400
  • A77 + Sigma 17-50mm separately $1370
  • A77 + Tamron 17-50mm separately $1300


The difference is pretty small when ordered together. If you are able to afford that sigma separately surely you can afford $30 more for 16-50, or your budget is really that tight in which case excuse me.

Oh btw I am assuming the above information is correct, its not really that small a difference where I live but it might be in the US.
