Tripod Recommendations w/ Legacy Lenses
1

Can anyone recommend a decent tripod $50 - $75 range.

I bought this one at Target for $17 and I think i got ripped off http://www.target.com/p/targus-extendable-tripod-50-tg-5060tr/-/A-10958572

Its OK when using kit lens or SEL50, but anything heavier or longer and it starts to droop and bounce all over the place.

Plus the camera swings off the head to the left or right.

Every time I use it I'm watching it out of the corner of my eye expecting the thing to fall over.

I was thinking maybe this one would do: http://www.adorama.com/BGMKC3H01.html
