Hi all,

i need some advice to help me decide which lens to buy. I'm currently usin a 18 - 70mm F3.5 - 5.6 lens. There's 2 lenses that i have in mind to buy, one is the the 50mm F1.4 and the other one is 18 - 250mm F3.5 - 5.6 lens.

Of coz the best solution is to buy both la but not enough money so have to choose one only. Hehe.

I like to take landscape photos and portraits. And i prefer to take night shots.

Would be really helpful if i can get some advice from the experts in the forum. Thanks in advance.

18-250 if you have a decent flash.

Have you upgraded to the A700? :lovegrin:

Do consider the Tamron 17-50mm f2.8 instead. Or go for the 50mm f1.4 for poratraits and use your kit lens for landscape.

Sony user? why not keep the kit lens and save money for 85mm CZ 1.4?
The lens price won't go down so it's a good investment. ;)

If I have to choose 18-250mm or 50 1.4, I will get the 50 1.4 and a pair of comfy Nike shoes for feet zooming.

50mm F1.4, for both portraits and low light shots. 70mm is sufficient for portaits, unless you like the super compresed look.
