Re: Sony E 10-18 f/4 OSS

Use it for landscape work, and mostly using manual focus.  Was bought to be used on trike rides, and almost always from a tripod.

As others have stated, there significant copy variation.  Bought 2, with the expectation that one was noticeably inferior to the other.  (Glad that both were not inferior.)  And I knew what to expect, since I rented it before hand.  And because of copy variation, would avoid if you cannot exchange the lens if end up w. a suspect copy.

Zeiss Touit 12mm: This was the competition.  The 10-18 f4 has consistent results, where the Zeiss 12mm, if it got it right, yielded better results.

Nikon 14-24 f2.8: Was my other wide lens, and definitely superior ... but also more than double the cost.  For the price, the 10-18 f4 is a decent lens.

Night photography: Run away!  This is not the lens for you.
