    I am from Canada and wonder where to go in the U.S. to buy a tamron 17-50. In Toronto this lens is about $489 Canadian, and i think it is a bit less in the states.

    Nice shots, thanks for sharing. Interested in seeing more indoor shots, esp. in situations where lighting is even lower. Do you have shots with the onboard flash or ext. flash?

    I'm not really fan of the super-zooms. They compromise on indoor performance (check out the f-stop as you zoom in). They are what they are: convenient and best known as "travel lenses."

    You will be fine with the kit lens (18-70mm) but if you want S3 range the Tamron 28-250mm will cover everything. $400ish.

    A good macro lens would be the 50mm f/1.7 (equiv to 75mm on the alpha) - $125US on ebay.

    For wide-angle/macro, the 17-50mm Tamron f/2.8, or 17-70 Sigma. Note theses lenses are not "macro" like a...

    That is an exceptional lens ($900+). I'll have to look into how the image quality compares with a sony a100 + tamron 17-50mm f/2.8 ($400) or Sigma 17-70 ($400).

    With a $2000 budget I'd get a Nikon D80 and 1 or 2 good lenses. You can get all VR lenses which is supposed to work better than Sony A100. Then again, with $2000 you could get a Sony A100 and a CZ...

    Two things:

    First is not to buy in into the high noise problem. Shoot at ISO800 and images are more than printable 4x6. @ iso1600 NR software cleans up the image very well. I was impressed.
