As there is not much talk about Sony (except fanboi bashing), I thought I would write up something on my lenses. I started out with Sony to continue to use Maxxum glass that BlackSheep started (I was a Canon FD guy so I sold off everything). I realized that working with APS-C digital is not the same as my experience with old full frame Canon film lenses. I only had fixed focal length lenses with with Canon as zoom lenses sucked or were way out of my budget. The Sony digital experience: I started with kit lenses ... then realized that they suck, so I grabbed some old Maxxum fixed focal length lenses (even though the used prices are over-inflated). Then went to some midrange third party zoomlenses as I did not want to spend my life savings. After much selling and buying I eventually realized that better IQ does come with a price ... and makes a difference what you spend. Zoom lens quality has come a long way for a lot lower in price. Sony DT 18-70mm -> DT 18-55mm -> DT 16-105mm f/3.5-5.6 Sigma 50mm macro -> Tokina 100mm macro (old version) -> Sigma 150mm macro APO OS HSM f/2.8 Sigma 70-300mm -> Sony 75-300mm -> Maxxum 100-300mm APO -> Sigma 100-300mm APO f/4 These three are going to be my staples. The 16-105mm and 150mm are new to me, but the IQ seems to be very good (to great) in my test shots. I am dropping my Maxxum 28-135mm (awesome IQ) as I have a Maxxum 24mm and 50mm. The Maxxum 24-85mm and 100-300mm APO are shared lenses since they are full frame, and handy on our Maxxum film bodies. BlackSheep has the Sigma 50mm macro, Tamron 10-24mm, Sigma 50-150mm f/2.8, and a Tamron 200-500mm. All the lenses that I have were purchased used ... except for the two 18-xxmm kit lenses ... so that reduced the pricing a lot. I would love some Sony G or CZ lenses but I have not won the lottery yet ... I think I will be satisfied with the lenses I have now for the 2013 season.
