Re: Down on the 18-55 O.I.S.

I concur with Deednets.

I have seen really good performance with the 18-55. Prior to purchasing it I took an SD card to my local retailer.

I shot the NEX 5 & 7, XE-1 for comparison. The XE-1 was significantly better to the point I thought that there was an issue with one of the NEX cameras as it seemed soft.

At the time I had no intention in buying the XE1 until I saw the results for myself. The DPreview shots of the XE1 I think are way too soft and don't do the camera/lens justice.

It doesn't mirror my experience.

Imho the 18-55 is one of the best zooms I've used and compares with my Nikkor 28-70 f2.8.

On the subject of the 35mm, take a look at the link below from my local retailer's blog that shows a comparison shot between the Canon 35mm Prime.
