Solid super-wide zoom

By p6design

Comments about Sony E 10-18mm f/4 OSS Lens:

There are many on-line reviews for this lens already and I will not repeat. I bought it mainly for travel for large scale architecture/building. It is light-weight, constant f/4, sharp, some distortion but can be corrected by LR. Zoom range is not exactly 2X, but adding 2mm (10mm-20mm) does not really make a difference. Overall it is an excellent lens for my intended use model.

Just perfect for Vlogging!

By Inspector

Comments about Sony E 10-18mm f/4 OSS Lens:

Besides amazing landspace photos, I needed this for vlogging purposes.
10mm is wide enough while filming myself and 18mm is perfect for the rest of my shoots.
I'm very happy with it.

Good Choice for Travel Photos

By Middle Seat

Comments about Sony E 10-18mm f/4 OSS Lens:

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. In bright light the shutter speed will usually let me get sharp images without vibration reduction, but if I am traveling without a tripod it's good to know that I can still take shots at twilight or indoors that will be usable,

I compared the images from this lens with others from my Zeiss 2,8/12mm Touit lens. The two lenses are similar only in focal length. The Zeiss is a prime lens without vibration reduction, and is a full stop faster. The Sony is a super wide zoom. Nonetheless, images made with the Sony compare favorably with those from the Zeiss, at least in the center of the picture. Images from the Zeiss are definitely more sharp and contrasty across the whole picture, and out of focus areas are more attractive. But the Sony is quite close in overall picture quality. For travel photos where I am shooting rapidly on the go the Sony gets my vote. For landscapes where I always have a tripod and plenty of time to get the shot just right the Zeiss is a better choice. In other words, the choice of lenses should be based on the intended purpose.

Comments about Sony E 10-18mm f/4 OSS Lens:

The lens is sharp out to the edges and is a perfect match for an APS-C sensor. It's not too bulky or heavy, so it works well for outdoor pursuits like hiking and kayaking. IMHO, it's well worth the money.

Comments about Sony E 10-18mm f/4 OSS Lens:

I use this lens primarily for aerial photography. It has produced some wonderful pictures. The focal length is perfect for what I'm shooting. Colors are great. Focal range is awesome. I'm new to photography, so I can't really comment on every feature. But, I'm stoked on this lens!

A great all around wide angle. Images are sharp. Another advantage is the fact this lens is lightweight, which makes it great for gimbal work for video.

I like it

By Ryan

Comments about Sony E 10-18mm f/4 OSS Lens:

Good lens. Small, lightweight, very wide angle.. I was pleased with the results on the FS5 and pleasantly surprised with the results on the A7S2 (full frame).. I was expecting a great deal of vignetting. I likely won't use it much full frame, but an interesting option to have.

By Hung

Comments about Sony E 10-18mm f/4 OSS Lens:

After one week using this lens to shoot landscape and group of people, I found it woks as it should.
The center is sharp event people close to the border look sharp enough.
I'm happy with it

Featherweight champ!

By masterblaster

from Northern VA

Verified Buyer

Comments about Sony E 10-18mm f/4 OSS Lens:

Nice optics! Image quality is nice... very nice. Great for video/gimbal work. Messing with the zoom doesn't throw off the balance too much at all. Crazy light but built not too bad... but it can be a bit more rugged. When I remove/mount the lens on my new a6500 (bit stiff), I'm afraid that I'm going to crush the barrel of the lens. Don't get me wrong, its not cheaply made but the plastic is a bit on the think side. I wouldn't have mind adding just a little more weight to give the body more rigidity.
