Re: Quick Review of the 10-18mm Wide Zoom

Interesting. I had exactly the same results comparing the 10-18 to my SEL16 and 18-200. The 10-18 was clearly better than the 16 (with and without UWA-converter), but also clearly inferior at 18mm than the 18-200mm.

But the main reason why I returned the lens was because of the strong magenta corner cast on my NEX-7 at focal lenghts shorter than 14mm. I found that unacceptable for a $/€850,- lens (even if the blame goes to the NEX-7).

Which is a pity since it's the build quality is superb as is the OSS.

And it showed what a great performer the 18-200mm lens is - especially considering its huge zoom range.
