Also i would love an opinion on a sweet lens for the sony a200/300 which would be a good start for wide angle and portrait ranges? I used to use a 105 for portrait with film cameras like 25 yrs ago... it can be a zoom lens that will also be somewhat fast for lowlight work and not too large or heavy..thank you
I use a Tamron 17-50mm f/2.8 for a lot of my indoor/low light work, and am very pleased with it. I also use a Minolta 50mm f/1.7 that works well for portraits, though I haven't done a lot of work in that area.
