Manufacturer description: The Sony DT 18-55mm F3.5-5.6 SAM is a low-cost standard zoom for Sony's APS-C format SLT cameras, which covers an effective focal length range of 27-52mm. Although it is roundly outperformed by lenses higher up in Sony's lineup, this is a useful 'first lens' for photographers entering the Alpha system from the bottom.
