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

I own 18mm 35 60  and 18-55mm

It's clear that 35 and 60 are stellar lenses and even if the 18-55mm is the best trans standard zoom I ever had (much better than my big Sigma 2.8 24-70mm Macro Ex)

At 18mm the debate is different : the prime is always sharper in the center

The zoom is better in borders and corners AND shows nearly no CA where the 18mm has got here it's Achille's heel (probably linked to ot's pancake like design...)

But the 18mm is wonderful for street photography

For compact allround package the zoom is an excellent solution
