help with Sony A77 Lenses

2 years 5 months ago #676621 by Malcolm-Romano
Hi there, I have a Sony A77 which was given to me a few years back.
Have been using it lately and looking at buying a few lenses for it. I
am a little confused as to which lenses I can buy as most of them are no
longer available from retail stores, buying second hand. I did a little
research and some lenses seem to have the motor in them and others not,
I believe that the camera has the motor that drives the zoom built into
it.
Does anyone know what I need to look for? I understand that it should
be an A Mount lens but when looking into them I come up with SSM, SLT,
SAM, HSM, RXD and so on. Can anyone help with an explanation about what I
should be looking for?

One that I was looking at was the DT 16-50mm F/2.8 SSM SAL1650 but looking for a few more.

 

Thanks

Mal
