Sony E 10-18mm F4 SEL1018 Review

It has been a rough journey for the Sony camp in the lens department as they are producing some that don't match the requirements of their camera sensors. However, with the release of the Sony E 10-18mm F4 SEL1018 lens, there is some hope. By looking at the lens' price tag, you will certainly expect a lot from this new beast of a lens. Note that most ultra wide lenses such as the Sony E 10-18mm F4 SEL1018 are sometimes a headache on mirrorless cameras mostly because of the short flange back distance. In this regard, the Sony E 10-18mm F4 SEL1018 is up to a huge task.


The first look of the lens will speak volumes as it's well built. The outside is covered with a well designed metal shell and it's also based on a metal mount. Looking at it, you would expect it to be heavy. However, this is not the case as it weighs only 225g. Of course the inner tube will protrude a bit while zooming. The focus and zoom lens are well placed and have a nice feel. They also move smoothly. The lens has an additional plastic hood to protect it.


The lens has an optical image stabilizer; something a bit unusual with ultra wide lenses. Well, this might explain why you have to pay more for this lens. So, does the lens deliver as expected? To a certain degree, the image quality can match well to Sony's high profile sensors. You will get sharp images even when the aperture settings are at medium. The only problem that you might experience is at the f/4 where you might see some flaws on the image's outer region. However, this might not be a concern in everyday shooting. You should expect high amounts of CAs and this just means that you will have some extra work in post production. You should also expect high vignetting. Image distortion might not be an issue unless it meets the keenest of eyes. Moreover, any lens of its kind couldn't do better.


All in all, the lens is pretty good from the aesthetic appeal to its performance. You will be expecting a fast and smooth autofocus and thanks to the image stabilizer; sharper images as well. With that said, this is a lens that is worth its salt. From its premium body to the performance, Sony did a good job and they deserve a pat at the back. However, they still need to up their game when it comes to centering. Of late, Sony have had an issue with centering and it would be a great idea if they were able to improve on this as most people would be particularly be concerned about this area if they are to use the NEX lenses. With that out of the way, you can confidently purchase the Sony E 10-18mm F4 SEL1018 lens. I would like to see Sony improve on the mentioned areas and until that is done, the Sony E 10-18mm F4 SEL1018 will only get a silver award.

 

  • The Good :
    Fast AF. Great Build. Lightweight. Sharp images
  • The Bad :
    Poor centering
Our score:
4 / 5
