    I've decided to stick with the A65 although I will definitely look into a weather sealed body when the time comes to replace this body. The 1650 on the other hand is serving me very, very well and...

    Going wide!

    From zoom to wide. Now I am thinking to get a wide lens. I believe that the main contestants are the Tokina 11-16mm and the Sigma 8-16mm. Here in Japan, the Tokina is about a whole $170 cheaper than...

    Hmm, I noticed that in post number 16, I said Sony vs Tamron. That's was a typo. I really meant Sony vs Sigma (50mm f/1.4 EX DG HSM).

    The price difference doesn't bother me, but the size...

    I have read about the Minolta, but haven't researched it much depth.

    From what I've seen, at 50mm f/1.4, it's the battle between Sony and Tamron. Unsurprisingly, my Googling doesn't turn up...

    Thank you! I think that this is the tie breaker that is going to shift me towards the A-77. I was afraid of looking up the price of the TAMRON 18-270mm F/3.5-6.3 Di II PZD but it is actually cheaper...
