This Sony SAL-1855 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 DT AF Lens is usually the first and sometimes the only lens a Sony Alpha camera owner will buy. This "kit" lens has an equivalent focal length of 27-82.5mm in the 35mm/full-frame standard. In other words: this is an inexpensive, compact wide-angle to short telephoto zoom for the emerging photographer.

Its cost, design, and overall size all lead the tyro to comfortably accessorize their kit lens, and begin developing a library of optics for their camera.

This compact 18-55mm lens is an excellent general-purpose, all-rounder lens for most photographic situations.
Sony's Smooth Autofocus Motor (SAM) quietly operates the lens system.

DT 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 SAM Lens offers shooters a compact and versatile zoom range with improved imaging performance. With a 27-82.5mm equivalent range and a maximum aperture range of f/3.5-5.6, users will enjoy a compact and lightweight kit. Also, it uses one extra-low dispersion element and two aspherical elements to combat aberrations while an improved rear baffle will minimize internal reflections. Further enhancing performance is a Smooth Autofocus Motor (SAM), which will provide fast, quiet focusing and a minimum focus distance of just 9.8". Additionally, it has a seven-blade circular diaphragm for smooth bokeh.

Covering wide-angle to portrait-length perspectives, this standard 18-55mm zoom is designed for APS-C format A-mount cameras, where it will provide a versatile 27-82.5mm equivalent focal length range.
A variable f/3.5-5.6 maximum aperture helps ensure that lens size and weight is kept to a minimum.
One extra-low dispersion glass element is featured in the lens design to help reduce chromatic aberrations and color fringing for improved clarity and color neutrality.
Two aspherical elements are incorporated in the lens design to reduce astigmatism, field curvature, coma, and other monochromatic aberrations.
By incorporating a Smooth Autofocus Motor (SAM) unit into the lens itself to drive the focusing element group, this lens is able to deliver smoother, quieter, and faster performance than coupled systems.
Users can focus as close as 9.8", providing a maximum magnification ratio of 0.34x for close-up imaging.
A rounded seven-blade diaphragm contributes to a pleasing bokeh quality when employing selective focus techniques.
