Will be getting a new lens sometime next month. Problem is, I can't decide which one to go for
. It's now down to a shootout between the Carl Zeiss 16 - 80, the Sony AF DT 16- 105 and Tamron 18 - 250 Di II.
I want the Zeiss because I've heard very good things about Zeiss glasses and I feel that the kit 18 - 70mm lens is not that brilliant. Having said that, the range of the Zeiss is very similar to my current lens and I've heard that the build quality of the Zeiss isn't that great.
The DT 16 - 105 is very tempting too since that appears to be good quality and it has a slightly better range than my current lens. The image quality, focusing speed, focusing sound is supposed to be better than what I currently have too.
The Tamron 18 - 250 is just insanely good for the price and will serve as a good walkaround lens. The ability to go from wide range to full 250 zoom is just so versatile that I'm saliviting at the prospective shots I can take.
I'm spoilt for choice
