Is this a good deal for Tamron AF 28-80mm f/3.5-5.6 Aspherical Lens & AF 75-300mm f/4-5.6 LD combo for Sony DSLR-A300? I read a couple of reviews on these lenses, nothing great, but they seem to be quality for the price.

It's currently going for $160.00 on Amazon, or should I just wait and stick to my upgrade plan of buying lenses late next year (I think I have accessor-itis)?

** edit: I moved this from the Sony forum, seems more applicable here **

Is it the one advertised by Amazon but sold by 47th Street Photo?

The trouble with Amazon these days is that, IMHO, you have to be quite careful who is actually selling the product. However, in the case of 47th Street Photo this ResellerRatings report will probably put your mind at rest.

As to whether the lens combo is good value I'll leave others who know these lenses to provide answers.
