My Grandma bought a Sony A300 on an impulse sometime last year and after a couple of months had decided it was too complex and expensive to take out of the house with her (she felt that if someone saw her using it, they'd mug her for it.) I ended up borrowing it in February and she was really impressed with the photos I took, and then on Father's Day she said that I can keep the camera. So that's pretty awesome! I tend to take portraits, landscapes (nature and architectural) and friends' cars. I also carry it everywhere with me with the two lenses that it came with. I really like the 70-200 Tamron, but the 18-70 Sony kit lens seems to be pretty slow, and harms my night time photos somewhat. I know I really need a tripod for it, so I'll be getting that on pay day, but I would love to get something a little faster than the kit lens, that is maybe a little wider too. What is out there below £200? I'd like a 50mm lens, but only because they seem to be popular with other DSLR users and that isn't really informed buying now, is it? Any good lenses that I should go for?
