As I see it, [url="http://forum.photozone.de/index.php?/topic/260-sony-a33-a55/page__view__findpost__p__2121"]the A55 looks like the perfect second camera for me[/url]. As such, I won't need many lenses for it. Two will do, a semi-wide (17-25mm) and a short tele (50-80mm). As the A55 is a small and light camera, so should the lenses be. However, the requirement list doesn't end there (I'm spoiled, I know...). I want them to be fast (f/2 or faster), I want AF and I want them to be sharp when used wide open.



The short tele was an easy find - Tamron 60/2 macro - but the other proved to be a difficult nut to crack. Zeiss 24/2? Too big. Sigma 20/1.8? Too big and not sharp enough wide open. Zuiko 21/2 + adapter? No AF. Sony 35/1.8 or Sigma 30/1.4? Too narrow. Leica 25/1.4? No APS coverage, no adapter, no AF. Zeiss 18/3.5 or 21/2.8? No adapter, no AF, too slow.



So, even if I am keeping the cost out of this, it seems I have no options. Please tell me I'm wrong...
