The 18-35 mm Art lens?
4

Is it good enough to replace prime lenses?

I have done at lot of testing over the past few years and some of the testing involved comparison of the output of the Dp1/2 merrills against the SD1M and the 18-35 mm Art lens. In every test the the Art lens was equal to or better than the DP Merrills. I also compared the 18-35 mm Art lens to the 30 mm Art lens that is sent with the sdQ kit. Again the 18-35 mm lens at 30 mm is equal or better than the 30 mm Art lens. I have not had an opportunity to check the lens against the new /short FL Art lenses, but suggest that they better be pretty to match the 18-35, IMO. At any rate here are a few shots taken with the 18-35 mm Art lens on the SD1M. Enjoy!
