Handling and features An ultra wide angle zoom lens for Sony NEX cameras that provides an angle of view equivalent to a 15-27mm lens on a 35mm camera. The lens also sports a constant maximum aperture of f/4, optical image stabilisation and costs around £700.

So long as the limitations of this lens are known, and understood, then this lens is certainly capable of producing high quality images. However, it is a shame that the performance at maximum aperture between 14mm and 18mm isn't up to the same high standard as when the lens is stopped down a little.

  • +

    Good build quality, Good performance when stopped down a little, Lightweight for a wide angle zoom, Low distortion

  • -

    Lacklustre performance at maximum aperture between 14mm and 18mm, Some issues focusing accurately in low contrast and low light conditions

Upon first contact, we were positively surprised about the high build quality of the Sony E 10-18mm f/4 OSS - an all-metal lens body are fairly rare these days. This is certainly a wise move by Sony because you are impressed when handling their products in show rooms.

A wide-angle zoom lens, to me, is a specialized tool for travel photos. I purchased this 10-18mm /f4 for that purpose and I am not disappointed in it at all. It focuses quickly and accurately, having decent sharpness and contrast over the entire image, and it incorporates vibration reduction.

Loved compact design & lite weight compared to my other lens.

    No Cons.

As far as the E-Mount system goes, there aren't a lot of options for wide angle lenses. The SEL1018 however fixes that problem by going Super Wide. Although with a focal length of 10mm on an APS-C Sensor makes it actually 15mm on a Full Frame camera, it is still wider than any other E-Mount lens out...

  • +

    Wide angle, zoom capabilities, 62mm diameter

  • +

This lens is a wonderful surprise. First I balked at what seemed to be a high price for this type of glass. I was comparing it to my 18-55mm "kit lens" which was about half the price.

I use this lens with my Sony a6500. It is lightweight and very sharp. I am very satisfied with it.
