Another Sony Lens to be reviewed by the website Dpreview is the Sony DT 18-70mm 1:3.5-5.6 review which is the standard kit lens for all the entry level DSLRs. Though the lens is for the average user, Dpreview found it to be inexpensive and reasonably capable.

The lens scores an extra point for its extended focal length range compared to other kit lenses (70mm vs. 55mm). The Sony DT 18-70mm 1:3.5-5.6 provided consistent image quality across most of the range and impressed in low light conditions.

Excerpt from the review:

'In summary, the 18-70mm is perhaps a reasonable starter lens, but if you really want to get the most out of the latest 10Mp+ DSLRs, you'll certainly need to find an alternative which can deliver the resolution the sensor demands. Personally I'd suggest anyone buying a new Alpha DSLR should look elsewhere for a better performing lens."
