    Thanks guys.

    I knew somebody would ask about my name. This is my name pretty much everywhere, it was my first forum name and it's just stuck with me. I use it everywhere so I don't have to remember a gazillion names.

    Congrats and welcome, You will have your work cut out for you trying to keep up with Frank aka Sparkie1263 he produces some amazing wildlife / outdoor shots with his a100, and he ain't afraid to take chances and experiment. So tell us glass junkies what lens or lenses do you have!

    It's just the kit lens for now, but I'd like to buy a beercan in the future. Where is the best place to buy one and how much do they usually run?

    Be prepared for the links to the problems with the KIT LENS. It isn't the best lens as you will see. What are you going to be taking pictures of? Then we can give you some advice on different lenses to get.

    I take pictures of pretty much everything, but I'd really like a telephoto lens with macro capability.

    Is that a beercan?

    I was also looking at the Tamron 70-300.

    The Tamron 70 300 is the way to go almost everybody here owns one. The other hot lens is the Minolta 50mm f/1.7 you can check ebay and get one for about $100.00. It makes a great portrait lens for low light. This is another lens everybody here has. I see you have the bug and you haven't gotten the camera yet.
