Similar to its Tamron sister lens the Sony 11-18mm f/4.5-5.6 DT does not convince. At 11mm the critical corner performance is absent and the hefty amount of CAs and pronounced distortions don't make things any better here.

22 January 2007

Sony's DT 11-18mm super wide zoom lens represents a minor evolution of the 11-18mm lens released by Konica Minolta in mid-2005 for the Dynax 5D and 7D cameras. Its DT design is ideally suited for the APS-sized CCD imager of these now defunct models - and also for the Sony Alpha A100 camera.

Using this lens with the alpha55 I was able to capture high quality images under both interior and exterior lighting conditions, Unlike the earlier reviewer, I did not experience any edge-related chromatic abberations. Most recommended.

    Sharp, vivid colors under a wide range of lighting conditions, good value for the money

Recommended as the best ultra wide angle zoom lens for the Sony Alpha cameras. Good colors, sharpness, distortion control, focus performance, and build quality.

  • +

    Great colors, sharp, fast focusing, light weight, reasonably compact, decent build quality.

  • -

    A little expensive, small maximum aperture.

it makes realy nice wide and crisp pictures ... it would be fantastic if this lens would have f2 I it is no good for filming in low light.

Bought this for interior shots - does exactly what I wanted it to do

Couldn't be happier! I was looking at wide angle lenses and got stuck between 2 sony lenses (one of which was a carl zeiss. Im too lazy to look them up :P). So I went to my dealer who only had this lens in the wide- angle section, and i'm glad i chose it.

On the whole, I am pleased with this lens. It is far from perfect -- the build quality is just OK, f/4.5-5.6 is pretty slow, etc., etc. -- but it produces sharp, distortion free, pictures and that is what matters most to me.

16 June 2012

For a while, I thought that the 18mm of my Sony 18-250 (that I rated 5 stars too) were enough. Then I decided to give a try to the ultra wide angle. Now, I have to admit I love it very much. The couple Alpha 700/Sony 11-18 is very fast.

This combination macro and medium range telephoto has been used three times and produced excellent pictures. It's expensive in relation to the cost of a camera but, as professionals will tell you, you can get so much more out of a camera with a good lens that the kit lens can't deliver.

16 June 2012

This is a great lens for closeup shots, with the Sony A200 DSLR. It's what I needed for better shooting. Attaches and comes off easily. I bought this one, plus a 75-300mm telephoto lens. The camera came with an 18-70mm lens. I wanted to increase my lens, as needed, based upon the shot.
