Can it hold it stable with 18-55 or 16mm lens?
Or should i buy the more expensive slr version?(i dont want )

NONE of the gorilla pods are worth buying. The ball mechanism in the legs loosens over time and quickly becomes unsuitable to support anything. My gorilla pod (large one) is at the point of almost falling apart.

Now I use one of these...

Very stiff and has now outlasted my gorilla pod.
