Sony DT 18-70mm lens
Sony DT 18-70mm has reviewed the Sony DT 18-70mm 1:3.5-5.6 SAL-1870 lens. This is the kit lens for entry level DSLRs from Sony and thus it is interesting to see the quality of the Sony DT 18-70mm lens in comparison to entry level kit lenses from other brands.

Dpreview ends up giving the Sony DT 18-70mm lens a pretty poor rating because the lens is pretty old and can not handle the high resolution of the new DSLR very well. The lens also suffers from chromatic aberration from 18mm to 35mm and soft corners. On the positive side the lens is very resistant to flare and have a bit longer reach than most kit lenses.
