First DSLR and dont know which lens to get, help please
So I'm finally going to hopefully (since it's not bought yet) get my first DSLR and I decided on the Sony a500 after reading many reviews and articles on it. I'm getting it in a bundle with the standard kit lens 18-55mm DT :) I also decided that the couple of hundred that I saved by not getting the a550 I'll use to include another lens into the bundle I'm already originally getting so my choices are either the Sony 75-300mm or the Sony 55-200mm my question is which one is better in your eyes and which one would you recommend. Or should I not get either one of them and just save up some more and get something better altogether?
Im a complete beginner in DSLR photography so this will be a learning journey for me lol Also I plan to take pictures of mostly wildlife , macro , landscapes , horses but also just anything that catches my eye :p Hope you can help :)
Did you happen to read ...
the first thread (<- click on this link) in the SONY DSLR Forum?
It is a review of a good, standard lens bag suggestions and the supporting manufacturer's or retailer's information for each lens. Click on the lens' image for the information.
Have a look-see, then ask for specifics, if necessary. It should make life a whole lot easier and faster for subsequent discussion. You have come to the right place for supported and informed suggestion. :D
To be honest, a teleconverter (T/C) is probably the best way to "screw up" the sharpness of your images. On a zoom lens, it is hard to justify its use, as any T/C simply darkens the aperture by at least ONE full f-stop. A 2x T/C takes it down by TWO full f/stops of light. Often, that is usually enough to disable your autofocus, especially on a 70-300 f/4-5.6 lens, which is ALREADY dark enough.
