Sony DT 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 SAM II


The Sony DT 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 SAM II is better than the older version of the lens, but it still suffers compared with other 18-55mm kit zooms.

Sony 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 DT SAM II SAL18552 review by Chris Munden Bauer


The old 18-55 SAM kit lens was a very good performer, I tested this Mk 2 on a A37 and its even better with new SD glass and reduced flare problems. The image quality is superb, and colours that only Sony seem to get right. No supplied lens hood but its...

Superb image quality and very neat and compact

Rather poor and cheap plastic construction, but no worse than others brands
