Re: 18-150mm vs 40mm 2.8 STM - not good for the 18-150

Final conclusion! I returned my 18-150 and got a new copy. I really think it's a lot better. Take a look here. These are all crops based on the same original scene in the first post.

18-150 original copy

18-150 new copy

32 1.4 M lens (in love with it)

40mm 2.8 stm

18-150 original copy

18-150 new copy

32mm test

40mm test

And remember these were taken from the following scene. Each shot is unique, i.e. I took one for each focus point, yet results are consistent.

Lesson: There are copy variations in the 18-150. I think the new one is much better than before and, although not as good as the primes, not as different as before.
