the lenses you shortlisted are all fine lenses..

wah, looks like an expensive selection. very rich leh u :)

Maybe you can get more advice from the Sony/Konica Minolta users in the sub-forum?

Actually we can't really advice you when we don't know what is your main interest in photography.
Generally, the uses for the lenses you're interested have different speciality needs.

Wide-angle and fisheye, mostly for landscapes?
70-200mm can be used for wildlife and can also be used for portraiture?
50mm prime can be used for portraiture or still life?

It all boils down to what you like to shoot and it can help you minimise your selection. ;)

Hi bro, since you are asking about Sony equipment, better to ask in the Sony sub-forum. Users of other brands may not be able to answer you since they have not used the Sony system before.
