Thanks All

Thanks everyone, never meant to start a negative post on the lens, I still think it looks pretty decent. Looking at samples for other UWA on other sites and from my own personal library, the corners often stink at infinity, the stink wide open, etc. The Sony looks pretty good with CA correction at 10mm f/8, and distortion but only if you shoot architecture or something where the distortion will be visibile.

If you are a Lightroom 4.2 shooter you can mostly eliminate CA and distortion at 10mm using the suggestions I mentioned in an earlier post in this thread (

I own a Samsung NX camera too and have the 12-24mm f/4-5.6 coming so I figure that lens will help me put the results from the 10-18mm f/4 into perspective.

If this thread put you on the fence on this lens, be sure to check back once Lightroom profiles, DXO modules, or your favorite RAW converter supports adjustments to fix the CA and distortion of this lens.
