Now that I got LA-EA2, I need to get a couple A-mount lenses to use with it. I want something that would help me to maximize it's advantages (fast AF) and doesn't really overlap with my other lenses in use. What I have: Sigma 12-24 in A-mount; Sigma 19/2.8; Kiron MC 28/2; Sigma 30/2.8; Minolta MD 50/1.7; SEL50/1.8 OSS; SEL18-55; Minolta MD 35-70/3.5 Macro; Minolta MD 70-210/4 Macro. So, just by looking at this, it seems where I lack the fast AF the most is the mid to long tele range. However, I could probably use a wide - to - mid range fast zoom for kids' karate competitions. So, I was thinking of getting either: Minolta AF 50/1.7. It's fast, sharp, and supposedly has fast AF. On the other hand, it's FL is rather limiting - too wide on the inside, too narrow for the outside. Minolta AF 35-70/4 Macro. Cheap ($50 or less anywhere). Much more useful focal range for most situations. However, F4 may be too slow for inside; I don't know if optically it's on par with my manual focus version; I don't know if AF is fast. Beercan (Minolta AF 70-210/4). A bit more expensive. The fast AF may help with tele shots. Optically excellent. However I don't use tele much, and this lens would be useless on the inside. What else would you recommend ? I'd like to stay low cost for now, to see if I even like the adapter + lens combo.
