Why would the reviewer used cheap Vivitar lens? DP doesn't even review this lens. This review is a blatant bashing of Sony which is against the forum rules!

Here now, it's not as gloomy as all that. I think the reviewer was only using what he/she had on hand. I found it most helpful in it's tips on how to use the lenses and the settings to look out for. The ability to reach back and breathe new life into anything - even an old Vivitar - is exactly what this camera is all about.

And BTW - he used a very credible mish-mash of lenses, something which I see as quite close to reality.
