Product Highlights
  • Super Wide-Angle Zoom Lens
  • Sony E-mount Lens for NEX Cameras
  • 15-27mm Equivalency in 35mm Format
  • Aperture Range: f/4.0-22
  • f/4.0 Aperture Throughout Zoom Range
  • Optical SteadyShot Image Stabilization
  • Internal Focusing System
  • Three Aspherical Elements
  • Super Extra-low Dispersion Glass

The 10-18mm f/4 OSS Alpha E-mount Wide-Angle Zoom Lens from Sony is an ultra wide-angle E-mount zoom lens compatible with the Alpha NEX cameras and NEX Handycam Camcorders. In the 35mm format, the focal lengths are equivalent to a 15-27mm field of view which is extremely wide-angle with exaggerated perspectives- ideal for expansive landscapes, certain interiors and creative portraits and group shots.

With an aperture of f/4.0 throughout the zoom range, fast shutter speeds and low ISO settings can be used even in low light for bright, sharp images. With the Optical SteadyShot Image Stabilization system it is even easier to shoot blur-free photos and videos in low light, regardless of camera shake. Three aspherical lens elements reduce spherical aberration and distortion and Super Extra-low Dispersion glass reduces chromatic aberration for high quality images even at maximum aperture. Fast autofocus is facilitated by movement of the lens elements at the rear of the lens and the 7-blade circular aperture creates smooth, circular bokeh in the out-of-focus areas within the frame.

10-18mm f/4 Super Wide-Angle Zoom Lens
This lens offers a constant maximum aperture of f/4 through the entire focal length range, enabling the use of the widest aperture at every focal length. Even in low-light environments, such as outdoors at sunset, users will be able to take advantage of the bright aperture and use fast shutter speeds without unnecessarily raising ISO sensitivity. The 10-18mm (15-27mm in 35mm format) provides an ultra wide angle zoom for shooting landscapes, in tight quarters or for creative exaggerated perspectives.
Image Stabilization
Built-in Optical SteadyShot image stabilization system provides a 4-stop (approximate) shutter speed advantage, making it significantly easier to achieve crisp, blur-free images and video.
Internal Focusing System
Lens elements at the rear of the optical system move, allowing rapid auto-focus response.
Optics
Three Aspherical lens elements correct for spherical aberration and distortion, making it possible to shoot high-contrast, high-quality images with markedly less bleeding even at the maximum aperture. In addition, the optical system employs Super Extra-low Dispersion glass, realizing highly detailed images with reduced color aberration even at the 10mm focal length.
Circular Aperture
In low-light shots or nightscapes, out-of-focus light sources have a pleasing circular defocused effect.

        Comments about Sony 10-18mm f/4 OSS Alpha E-mount Wide-Angle Zoom Lens:

        This is an amazing wide angle lens! I just got back from France and I found myself using this lens almost more than my 18-200mm. It was especially useful in interior situations. The 10-18mm is really fun, and I'm having a blast playing with it!

        ... i was looking for the best lens for my A5100 just for Selfies and after trying the prime lenses 35mm and 24mm, i settled for this!
        ... it makes me look thinner in some strange ways and my friends love that we could fit in the screen.

        Comments about Sony 10-18mm f/4 OSS Alpha E-mount Wide-Angle Zoom Lens:

        After the Zeiss 24mm f1.8, this should be your next buy for the Sony NEX. The high end of the zoom (equivalent 24mm) is a great walk-around wide angle, while the wider end is perfect for those interiors and even landscapes. It's a sharp, sharp, sharp lens that you'll find yourself going to more and more often. Highly recommended!

            Usable with Sony A7

            from SoCal

            Comments about Sony 10-18mm f/4 OSS Alpha E-mount Wide-Angle Zoom Lens:

            Covers for me 12mm to 16mm full frame. Remove the rear baffle and 18mm becomes usable.
            On a Sony A7 the lens is smallish, light, super wide, fast and with 12-18 range plus OSS what's not to like?

                Wanted to expand in to the wide angle I purchased this as a second lens for my a6000. Amazed every time at the field of view at the 10mm side.
                Amazing for landscape. Should be useful for close quarters images as well.

                  Comments about Sony 10-18mm f/4 OSS Alpha E-mount Wide-Angle Zoom Lens:

                  Ultra Wide and fisheye is where the mirrorless systems really shine - obviously it seems to be much easier (and cheaper) to build good wide angle lenses for shorter lens flange/sensor distance.

                  The (in my view totally outstanding) Rokinon/Samyang 8/2.8 Fisheye for NEX and the excellent 10-18 Sony both prove it. Little to no CA issues, limited flare issues, sharp to the corners stopped down and a small, lightweigt package you can take everywhere.

                  I rarely leave home without this lens nowadays - something I couldn't say of the bulky and heavy Sigma 10-20/DSLR package I owned earlier.

                  Yes, the built is a bit plasticky but sturdy and surely supports the lightweight. Zoom/manual focus have just the right resistance and picture quality is excellent (especially given the price/quality ratio).

                  A NEX system is not complete without this lens - refreshing to see Sony (or whoever helped them) finally made it to create such a lens (the Sony A-mount "Tamron" 11-18 was always a big disappointment but finally this lens arrived!).

                  btw. A hint for IR photography addicts: I used the 10-18 for some hundreds of IR photos so far and couldn't see a relevant IR spot issue ever - seems to be perfect for IR photography too - unlike the Sony 16/2.8 and Sony 16-50 which both have some issues with infrared - just another reason to love this lens!

                    The lens is exceptional. Every day street lens plus beautiful landscapes. There is some lens curvature at 10MM, but without looking at a brick wall it will be hard to see. Easily taken care of in PS. You may find a better lens, at twice the price.

                          Just got this last week and theres been a lot of rain so haven't been able to really test it out other than around the house. But it is sharp in the center wide open at f/4 and stopped down a bit sharpens up in the corners. And with the OSS it's great indoors for higher iso conditions.

                            Comments about Sony 10-18mm f/4 OSS Alpha E-mount Wide-Angle Zoom Lens:

                            I use this lens for Landscape and Architecture. It has very little distortion. The lens is tack sharp and autofocus is fast. Widest Aperture is F 4 from 10mm to 18mm. Auto focus is fast as expected in a wide angle zoom.

                            Great lens for tight spots, I have used it at a wedding reception recently and in a band room for video with my Sony ea50uh. The image quality is very nice, the only draw back is the lens distortion at 10mm which is occasionally a cool effect but not always.

                              This lens matches the angle of view of the Sigma 10-20 that I have used on my Pentax K5 DSLR but is much smaller and lighter, has OSS, and is a bit faster at the long end. It is well built and very sharp. Distortion at the wide end is easily eliminated by the lens profile and Upright tool in Lightroom 5. I will be selling the Sigma 10-20

                                My other setup is a Nikon D800 with the 14-24mm lens. They are a joy to use but heavy to pack. I pair this lens with the NEX-7 to make hiking pleasant again and still get the landscape vistas I love. I also like the reasonable size so I can use the occasional filter again on the wide angles such as my infrared or variable ND filter.

                                  Comments about Sony 10-18mm f/4 OSS Alpha E-mount Wide-Angle Zoom Lens:

                                  If you never had a 10mm,(15mm equiv.), wide angle you'll be shocked at the photo's possibilities that open up for you.

                                  This lens presents great color, contrast with decent sharpness. I haven't noticed any color fringing that would bother me.

                                  It's such a fun lens to have that I have to force myself NOT to use it because I'm overdoing it.
