    I just got a Sony 16-105 for my Sony alpha 33. I got it mostly because I find wide angle much more useful than telephoto. Also, this is a relatively and compact lens. I find the long telephotos just to big to carry around. Try not to buy a lens until you can see and feel how it fits on your camera and how it is balanced for you.

    55-200 is definitely a good lens to purchase at its price. If you would like a zoom lens, I would go for 18-250 which is the most selling lens apart from 18-55 and 18-200
