Hi,

Very new to this forum although I've been following the posts for a while. I've just recently upgraded from a Sony a200 to the a700 and have 2 questions.

1) Does anyone using the a700 find that it overexposes a bit?
2) Is the Tamron 17~50mm Di lens a good match for the a700?

I've realised that a few folks go for the CZ 16~80 but I can't stretch to that kind of money just yet, having spent loads on the 700, new flash and batt unit! I have a Vivitar Series 1 100 ~ 400mm lens and this gives me some beautiful photos, as long as the Tamron can achieve the same quality, I will be happy :)

(Just not sure what justifies a "good" lens that is suitable for the beast of a camera I have just bought)!

Many thanks

Adam

for tamron, becareful for poor quality control, make sure buy from seller that has good return / warranty policy.
