Hi,

My Sony 3.5-5.6/18-70 len died so I'm thinking of getting a replacement. What should i buy? I'll probably want to try len from other brands.

Can I get Tamron Macro 90mm as a replacement?

Wah your response so fast...thanks for the information. I do mainly indoor shooting on Macro mode but i feel the len is not good at capturing the bearings, small parts and my dog. I only use it for lanscapes while travelling to overseas.

One question, the Tamron 90mm does it mean 0 to 90mm?

Agreed with Maxwell207 on the Sony 16105 mm. A superb all rounder. Alternatively, you can try the Tamron 28-75 mm lens. It's a good walkabout lens and highly recommended for portraiture. I have it on my A350 and seldom take it off.
