Sony a350 lenses

Hello. Recently a received a Sony a350 for Christmas and here's what I want to do with the camera, once I learn about it more

I want to do macro photography and portrait photography, starting with pics of my 3 kids.

I really cannot afford expensive lenses.

But, for what I want to do above, what would you suggest?

Re: Sony a350 lenses

What lens did you get with the camera. Was it the 18-70?

Re: Sony a350 lenses

I had an 18-70 with my Nikon for over a year before I started adding other lenses. It has an excellent range and will certainly do you to start with. You can use it for portraits at the longer end (50-70) and it is wide enough for general purpose use too.

For macro and portrature something like a Sigma 105 or 150 will do the job.

Re: Sony a350 lenses

You can always look on popular auction sites for Konica Minolta glass. There are quite a few prime lenses that will give very good results. e.g. 50mm lens
