Re: Please see verybiglebowski's comparison with Nikon 14-24

I found the full-size images from the earlier comparison at dslr-check. There's actually a whole pile of interesting images on that site (including a comparison of the 16-50mm power zoom to the 18-55mm kit lens).

To my eyes the Sony 10-18mm looks very similar to the Fuji XF 14mm, which is outstanding. The Panasonic lens is a little softer, but still decent. The Olympus lens is good in the center but suffers a bit in the corners.

I also found some images from the Sigma 10-20mm. I've posted the sample at 12mm inline and links to samples at 10mm and 18mm. I certainly wouldn't call it comparable to any of the other lenses here (assuming a good copy was tested).

10-18mm @ 14mm f/8

XF 14mm @ f/8

Lumix 7-14mm @ f/5.6

Olympus 9-18mm @ f/5.6

Sigma 10-20mm @ 12mm f/8

Sigma 10-20mm @ 10mm f/8

Sigma 10-20mm @ 18mm f/8
