    Through some luck I have been able to pickup a Minolta 70-120 F4 (the venerable Beercan) and add it to my kit... however, as I already own the Sony DT 18-250 I find myself wondering if I even need...

    Kit lens + DT 18-250 here - plus, I've also added a Minolta 70-210 F4 "Beercan" and a prime Minolta 50mm F1.7 to my kit - so the Sony lenses are far from the only game in town for us Alpha users! ...

    I agree with the others - the background is not good. That's really the #1 thing one should look at when setting up. Also the flash caused shiny skin... if you had used a diffuser or something this...
