if we're talking of another lens data - anyone with the hands on experience with the Sigma 8-16mm F4.5-5.6 DC HSM in Alpha mount on N7 (through LA-EA2) ??

I'd be exp. interested to see RAWs from the Sigi 8-16 on N7, wide open too


I was using the 8-16 on N7 with EA2 before I got my hands on the 10-18

Wide open, the corners and edges are far worse than the 10-18 - horrible smearing.

@8mm, one has to stop down at least to F8 to get (marginally) acceptable results. Peak performance is at F11-13. Performance improves as one gets toward the tele end though.

But in terms of ghosting, purple fringing and flare handling, there is very little to complain - you can shot it directly into the sun, or at any other angle, and you will have a hard time getting it to flare. Just wish the 10-18 does half as good in this department.
