Sony DT 18-70mm F/3.5-5.6 Lens Review

Review Summary
Reader Score: 5.40 (out of 10)
Review (Summary): "The DT 18-70mm 1:3.5-5.6 is Sony's standard kit lens supplied with their entry level DSLRs, which they describe as a versatile general purpose lens covering a wide range of applications, and which features aspheric and ED glass lens elements for 'outstanding clarity at all focal lengths'. The 70mm maximum focal length extends further into the classic 'portrait' range compared to the 18-55mm kit lenses typically supplied by other manufacturers, offering a flattering perspective for people pictures. ...

... Unfortunately the one area where the lens does fall short is that of resolving power, as it struggles to deliver sufficient detail for the latest generation of 10-14 megapixel sensors. The fundamental problem is that, whilst it can give quite sharp results in the centre of the frame, it simply doesn't deliver sufficient resolution towards the edges and corners. ..."
