Thanks again for all the advice.¬* I think I've come to a conclusion.

I think I'm going to stick with the kit 18-70mm lens (maybe the Tamron 17-50mm, but it's a little more expensive) and get some practice with that¬*then probably get the Tamron 50mm f1.7 a little further down the line, with either a Sony or Beercan for my telephoto.
Ya we mean minolta 50mm f/1.7. It is cheap - great for portraits.

Have fun with the kit. It has its limitations but overall it is VERY sharp and has good color saturation. With post-processing images are even better.

I may switch to a tamron17-50mm but i am satisfied with my current set-up. Besides, with most shots outdoors the kit lens acts like a very expensive lens
