... plus, you've got the stabilization in the camera body. You don't need it in the lens too.

Yeah. Sometimes, if you're not careful, when you copy a link, this site will replace the original domain with its own.

The one that works is http://redirectingat.com/?id=42X495067&xs=1&url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.tamron.eu...

... but the one that doesn't is http://forums.steves-digicams.com/SP%20AF%2017-50mm...

Just to give you an update, and to thank you all again for your advice, but I am now a proud owner of an A450, which I managed to get new, with kit 18-55 lens, cheaper than for just the body! (a shade less than 320 pounds sterling).

I'm pleasantly surprised by the big difference in results between the A450/kit lens and my old A200/kit lens. So much so, that I'm putting off buying the Tamron 17-50 lens for the short-term and spend the money on other accessories, like a decent tripod/monopod, remote or something?

Thanks again.

Congratulations on your new A-450. That is a camera that a couple of us on the Forum (TCav and myself, for starters) really wish that had come to the USA as well. We will look forward to seeing some sample photos. Have fun.

I have a A550, and bought the Sony 18-200 lens as well, that is my absolute fav, do it all lens.

I had bought the double lens kit, and i dont think either lens has been used yet
