No I wouldn't. If someone gave me a 10-18mm lens I would immediately sell it. It is not of the same caliber as most of the others mentioned, and much too expensive.


Well, it's not the same as those other lenses because it serves a different function. It is very good at what it does. If you want ultra wide angle with minimal distortion and some zoom capability (and stabilization for video) I'm not sure what else is out there. Whether it is overpriced or not depends on how much you value those characteristics. If you don't value them, that's fine. To each his own. But I think the way you phrased that was unhelpfully dismissive.

Personally, I might sell mine because I find I don't use it as much as I expected to use it when I bought it. But I have no problem at all with the quality of the images it takes. It is very good at what it does. Other lenses do other things. Everyone's preferences are different.

I am not trying to be helpful.

Wow. Way to be a dick...
