Originally produced by Konica Minolta, and currently produced by Sony, the DT 18-70mm f/3.5-5.6, is a photographic lens compatible with cameras using the Minolta AF and Sony α lens mounts. The DT designation means this lens is designed to be used with a camera with an APS-C size sensor. When the 1.5× crop factor is considered, the lens has an effective equivalent 27–105mm focal length.

This lens is often sold as a kit lens, for instance in the Sony A100K, A100W, A200K, A200W, A300K, A350W and A700K kits.
