    Hi all

    What would be a good upgrade in optical performance for the Sony Alpha standard 18-55 kit lens.
    The Zeiss alternatives are a bit out of my price range, but I heard the Tamron 17-50 [non VC version] is pretty good. Any thoughts.

    The 16-50 that is bundled with the A77 may be worth looking at ?

    It gets some good reviews and is quite often seen around 400 second hand?

    Review here and also shows some alternatives you may also consider?

    The Tamron 17-50 (non VC) is a great lens. Sharp from 2.8 with a constant 2.8 aperture. A lot of Sony users on www.dyxum.com rate it highly (see the lens review section). I'm glad I bought one, I use it with an A65.
