Return of the 18-105G.
Dec 30, 2013

After a hard decision I decided to return the lens! I loved everything about the lens except the distortion. The color and sharpness of the lens is what made it such a difficult decision.

In the end, my decision was based on the price and size of a G lens. I expected a certain quality from a G lens. And that expectation is not having so much sw correction on a high end lens.

For others that don't mind the sw corrections, everything else about this lens was excellent. I was willing to except the size, but not with the distortion. That much distortion I believe hurts the G brands reputation!

Moving forward, I believe, I will purchase the laea4 adapter and go with alpha and Minolta glass for longer focal lengths.

What is others who received the lens opinion?
