Geared Up

Photography is not a cheap hobby. Most of us start with hopes of having the best of the best gear and capturing only the highest quality images. For me I started with many a second hand lens including Minolta standards and Sony affordable (including kit) lenses. The time has come for me to upgrade my glass and put aside my current ensemble.

The Tamron 18-270mm f/3.5-6.3 Di II PZD which was not suited for the full-frame A900 will be moved to my Sony a330, the others put aside for another day or passed down to the next hopeful photographer.

After weighing all the options I had available for the Sony A900, I have chosen the following lenses for my kit.

  • Sony 24-70mm f/2.8 Carl Zeiss T* Standard Zoom Lens
  • Sony 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6 Telephoto Zoom Lens

This professional glass combo will cover off a majority of the subject matter I will be shooting (portrait, landscape, nature, urban, etc.), I will be posting my field results on these lenses going forward, starting with my upcoming trip to Yellowstone.
