I've finally completed the Sony A100 review. It's a long, but interesting one, so check it out here
Sigma has come out with a few new lenses of interest. They're a great alternative to factory lenses, and usually
much less expensive.
Sigma 10-20mm F/4-5.6 EX DC HSM
Sigma 18-50mm F/2.8 EX DC macro
Minimum focusing distance of 20cm with a maximum magnification of 1:3.
Aspherical lenses offer compact and lightweight construction.
SLD and ELD glasses offer excellent correction of color aberrations.
Price unknown at this time but a guess would be around $500.
Great alternative to the cheap "kit" lenses.

- Minimum focusing distance of 7.9", maximum magnification of 1:2.3.

- Aspherical and SLD lenses, offer excellent correction for various aberrations.
- The lens offers a large aperture of F2.8 at wide angle.
- A slightly faster lens than the typical "kit" offerings.
