Dpreview.com just posted a review of the Sony 50/1.4, similar to the Minolta 50/1.4 RS. This got me thinking about what lenses are good enough for the amazingly high-res A900. The Sony 50/1.4 might not be good enough, especially wide open. Compared to Canon, which offers a 24-70/2.8 or 24-105/4 IS with filter thread matching the 70-200/2.8 IS, what does Sony offer? Do they expect customers to buy the Zeiss 24-70/2.8 with bad bokeh and the redesigned Minolta 70-200/2.8 SSM renamed SAL or something? If the 50/1.4 can't match the resolution of the A900, how could these lenses? I thought the Sigma 70-200/2.8 was better than the old Minolta, but maybe I missed some reviews. Personal note: I have the 24-50/4, which might be almost good enough for the A900, but even with film, my 70-210/4 is disappointing at the long end, and its color balance is too warm. I also have a 70-210/3.5-4.5, but it is mediocre even with film at the short end. Obviously if I bought an A900 I would neeed a new long zoom lens, at minimum. Oh yeah, I have a 50/1.4 and it is better than either of these lenses.
