Do you have any samples online of this? How much cropping do you have to do?

None. It's pretty much full frame (with correctable vignetting) from 12-17 as long as the lens hood is off. Two links with photos:

Many of us have used this lens with our own experiences to confirm this as well. It's quite a steal considering the size and weight...

I've said this before; if you've got the 10-18, use it until something better comes along, but don't buy it for full frame use. It's pretty much a 14mm prime. And it's not very good outside the aps-c frame, my biggest concern was low contrast and poor resolution on full frame. Uncorrected, the distortion is crazy, so you have to post process all images. I sold my 10-18 when I got the A7 and are now using a Voigtländer 15mm and Canon 24mm IS. Until I get a FE 16-35...
