  1. Hi All, I just picked up the Sony A73 but haven't picked up a lens yet. As my first lens, I'm torn between the Tamron 28-75 and the Sony 24-105. The thing is, I can get the Sony 24-105 f4 for the same price as the Tamron 28-75 due to a close friend working at Sony ("employee discount"). Any reason NOT to get this lens (24-105)? I realize it's f4 vs f2.8 (ISO can make up for it) but what about the bokeh? Are they similar? I've read that with the Sony you've got to increase your focal length to achieve similar bokeh results, which concerns me if I want to use the 24-105 for some portraiture photography (50mm/85mm). I can likely only afford one lens for the next 12-18 months, although I could maybe swing the Sony FE 50mm f1.8 which is about 300$. Thoughts? I've got to make a decision soon. Thanks and looking forward to getting into this system, it sounds great!
