My first new lens purchase

Postby REM1100 » Wed Jan 27, 2010 11:28 pm

Yesterday I walked into the Sony Store..a place I dread going into because of outlandish high price with the intent of checking
out the Sony A380 and a manager latched onto me and showed me some cameras and then he asked me if I needed a new lens,
I told him no as i already had 8 lens already used and had ordered a minolta Beer can.
..He pulled out a new Discontinued box which had a price of $289 plus tax then he turned the box around and showed me a red tag for $99 for a Sony 55-200mm f4-5.6 plastic lightweight lens,,,I put it on my Sony A200 and shot some building shots...SOLD!!
Next day I tested it at close and far ranges 50-200 yds...Wow it is a keeper!! as I have never bought new before.
