Thanks for the review!

Just a quick question from a beginner, would going to a smaller aperture improve the sharpness on the 1018 at 18mm?

As with most lenses it seems, yes, there seems to be an improvement in crispness as you move to a smaller aperture from wide open. A quote from the review at Luminous Landscape says, "Changing the aperture from f/4 to f/5.6, there is a noticeable up-tick of overall image crispness, making it very good indeed"

But most people like to see what the lens is capable of wide open since that's why they got fast lenses for in the first place.
