I plan to buy SLT 57. I already own a Sony Alpha 200 dslr with 18-70 and 70-300 lens. Should I buy SLT57 body only or get it with a 18-55 kit lens and sell of my old 18-70 ? I will try to sell off the old Sony alpha 200 body. Any advice on the lens combination will help in deciding.

The 18-50 seems definitely better than the 18-70.
See http://www.kurtmunger.com/sony_dt_18_55mm_f_3_5_5_6_samid140.html
I recommend the 18-55 unless you have budget for something better in that range.
The Sony 16-50 2.8 is very good, but for a price ...
Do'nt expect much from selling the 18-70 though.
