I'm thinking of going for real quality high resolution by getting a Sony Alpha 77 and have seen one advertised in Spain for 1400 euros with the 18-55mm lens OR with another lens - 16-50mm for 1900 euros.

Can anyone tell me why there is such a massive price difference between the two lenses..The Sony brochure, Sony 'make.believe' which the shop gave me, on which the shop wrote the prices in biro, doesn't specify any more about the lenses for the A77 that makes much sense to me. I'm a beginner on the technical side as well which doesn't help.. Did the shop just pluck prices out of the sky or is there a real reason for such a big difference in price between the two?

Does anyone also know of other sources to buy this camera as the shop on this website via WDC doesn't deal with customers not in UK and the only other place I can now see them is Amazon USA

Thanks in advance for any help !
