The 16-50 is not yet available when i got the A77... that's why i had to settle for the 18-55 just to be able to use the cam... i was told the new lens will be available before end of Nov.
btw sir, i'm just a hobbyist and i do not really worry much about the gear... i just take pictures
the purpose why i bought the A77? well it really felt good just to hold it finally and couldn't resist the urge to have it
[QUOTE=AllanAgcanas;1249279]why use the 18-55 kit lens on an a77?
although it's ok but it defeats the purpose of buying a 24mp semi pro body and use the cheapest kit lens..
also isnt the 16-50 f/2.8 the kit lens for the a77?[/QUOT
Sony Phil offers A77 with kit lens choice of
18-55 (SLT-A77VK) and 16-50(SLT-A77VQ.
I agree that the 24megapixels will be more appreciated by a good lens that can resolve it thats why for the moment I suggest getting a prime..like the 50mm, while he's waiting for the 16-50.
Sir bob if ever you're itching to get a REALLY GOOD lens now...I suggest this.
That is an awesome everyday lens with an equivalent focal length of 50mm on an apsc one of the best A-mount primes.
If you want a constant aperture zoom lens, I saw one of these in SM North Edsa.
Tamron 17-50 f2.8
It has great reviews and is awesome for both photo and video.
Thank you sir Gerald
I'm not yet itching for a new lens... i need to learn how to use the camera first hihi ;D
I just called Sony Center again today but they don't have definite date on when the 16-50 will available...
I might consider your recommended lenses... thanks again sir.
