Keep in mind that the Tamron 70-300Di LD and the Minolta 28-85 are both relatively sharp lenses, despite their relatively low prices.Even where they aren't so good, they're still better than most lenses of their kind, and considerably better than any superzoom lens available. And look aroundand see how many peopleare praising their superzooms.Perhaps you're picking nits.

Oh I am happy with what I have. The only other type lens I want is a macro. Doing macros was much cheaper with my h2, Sony macro lens and raynox 250.

Your Tamron 70-300 is a 1:2 zoom which isn't bad, and it's got a longer focal length than either of Sony's macro lenses. And since the lenses you've got are sharper than average, you might get away with an extension tube or two. I've put an extension tube on my Beercan (1:4) and gotten some results I'm pleased with.
