Advice on Sony Lens

Last Modified: 2012-08-13
Hi

My partner has a Sony A35 camera and I would like to purchase a new lens for her birthday.

She has the stock lens that cam with her A230, some kind of macro zoom lens and a Sony portrait lens.

Prior to using DSLR's she used a Kodak camera that has a 10X super zoom, this is a function she misses quite a bit.

I would like to buy something that will replace the stock lens that offers the same wide angle view + around a 10X zoom.

I understand that things are measured differently in the world of DSLR but to be quite frank I don't understand any of it!

The budget would be around £300.  Are the any lens' around that price that anyone can recommend that would suit my specification?

Many thanks
