Re: Lenses for a Sony a33
yea i wouldnt spend 500 on that lense, a wide angle and super zoom telephoto should be different lenses. Chances are if the focal range is 18 all the way to 250 the image quality isnt gunna be as great. Kit lenses at 18-55 can take pretty decent landscapes. 50 mm is great for low light, portraits, DOF, and as a walk around lens, 70-300(ish) is a decent starter lens for telephoto. Id start with those three bc a good wide angle is expensive for low budget and has specific uses(which you might no use very much). After you get used to those three than you might choose to sell one of yours if you dont find a use for it very much, or then you'll be able to know what kinda lens you want to upgrade to next to fit in with your others or you feel like is missing from your kit. I'd love a wide angle but i cant spend 600-700 on one right now. My 18-85 does great with landscapes.
