    For option 2,learn first then 2-3 years later upgrade but keep the lens.
    For option 3,currently no budget for other lens save more money to get 50mm lens in future.

    BTW if i want to buy the extended warranty,do i have to do it at the same time as when i buy the camera?or can wait a few weeks?
    ive read that someone extended the warranty after he bought the camera for one month. But its best that u ask the people at Sony regarding this.

    Extending warranty is good though, as Sony includes sensor and lenses cleaning as part of the warranty coverage. So for the 3+ yrs, u can send your body and lenses (including the free 50mm f1.8) for cleaning and they wont charge you a cent.

    I will be sending my A500 for cleaning next week. Spotted dust particle inside my sensor already

    i advise u to go down sonystyle shops and check with them 1st, see whats the allowance for the extension of warranty promotion. If can delay 1 month then it'll be just nice for you.
