I recently bought (10 months ago) a Konica Minolta Maxxum 5D which I love. I'd like to replace the 'kit' lens (18-70 3.5) with something better. I much more improved lens. Sort of an all-purpose lens.

I've been asking camera stores and searching online and not getting too much info to help and a lot of marketing talk.

I seem to have narrowed it down to something that is a 2.8 instead of the 3.5 that I have. I've been told that will yield 4 times more light and a faster lens; decrease distortion, etc.

At this point, I'm not sure
1) If it would help.
2) What brand name? Tokina, Sigma, etc....
3) Do I need 2 lenses?
4) Wait on Sony to come out with theirs and pay more for the name? I've heard that may happen, at least at first.

Any help would be very appreciated.
