At wider angles, there's enough depth of field so autofocus can afford to be a little bit sloppy. But with that said, my Tamron 17-50 autofocuses as fast as any other lens I've got. But I'm using a Konica Minolta 5D, not a Sony A100, but I don't think there's any difference in that regard.

And, at a store, you'll be able to try it out for yourself.

thanks a lot guys, i flipped a coin and picked sammys as i was on a tight time schedule, i had 2 hrs, they turned out to be the same camera store that i stumbled upon that i mentioned earlier. the sales guy was very helpful and as soon as he heard i was starting over he took away the sony and handed me the pentax K 10 D with the kit lens. even at F3.5 she focuses fast in low light, i finished LA with some time to spare so i drove accross to vegas and took 364 pics in 12 hrs

man that cam works greaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaat



knowing me i will be looking for some lenses soon, any input will be greatly appreciated

Have a great time with your K10 - it's areally nice camera. As far as lenses, it all depends on your budget and your interests, also if you are interested in buying used lenses (there are some really excellent older lenses around if you are willing to check out ebay and pawn shops, etc.). Biggest thing to know before you go looking for used Pentax mount lenses is how to identify what the lens capability is and if it meets your needs (a manual lens doesn't suddenly become auto focus, auto exposure). If you have specific questions, ask on the Pentax specific part of this board - there's lots of knowledge there.
