18-105 owners, please look at this...

Just got 18-105 finally here from Amazon. Immediately, tested it & noticed that the field of view at widest setting is narrower than 18-55. I mounted Sigma 19/2.8 and the FOV is identical - actually Sigma is just a tad wider !!! So either the lens is defective, or the 18-105 is really a 19-105... Can someone confirm ?

There seems no other problems with this lens - it's sharp, from what I can tell, and has good colors, also lighter than I expected. But not getting the 18mm is a bummer.

I will post some shots to prove this tomorrow when I am back home.
