Quick Review of the 10-18mm Wide Zoom
Feb 9, 2013

Hey everyone, I've done a quick comparative review of the Sony NEX E-mount 10-18mm wide angle zoom with the 18-200mm zoom and the 16mm prime.

Full review and images can be found here: http://ai-artificialimagination.blogspot.com.au/2013/02/sony-nex-10-18mm-lens-shootout.html

My findings were that the lens is not that sharp at 18mm when comparing to the 18-200mm, which is a bit disappointing. It definitely beats the 16mm prime with the VCL-ECU1 (0.75x converter) though when comparing at the wide end.

I also find that when you're shooting at extreme wide angles, having a zoom is very handy. In this focal length range, a small change in focal length has a huge impact on your composition and framing, so I definitely prefer having the convenience of a zoom as well as being able to walk closer or further from the subject.
