Re: How good or bad is Sony 10-18?

Here's my post from the above mentioned thread.....

"I avoided it for years due to high price for a slow zoom and reports of copy variation. I finally started looking for one on the used market as I was just so intrigued with the idea of an UWA zoom with AF. I figured I'd sell for minimal loss if I wasn't happy. I found a mint copy for a very good price. I'm happy to say it seems to be good performer. So my thoughts are these...

- I think it is a great lens to have in the bag.

- Slow but I always stop down when shooting wide anyhow

- IMO Worth up to about $450 USD, but not much more. I'd never think for a second about paying new retail for this lens."

All that said I will mention the corners are still a little soft even at landscape apertures.

I like mine a lot.
