EF-S 10-18 f/4.5-5.6 IS STM Image Samples
« on: May 15, 2014, 08:59:07 AM »

Canon China has posted some sample images from the upcoming Canon EF-S 10-18 f/4.5-5.6 IS STM lens. For a $300 lens, the results look very good. This may be one of those lenses all APS-C shooters end up buying. You can view the images here.

If it has IQ camparable to other current UWA lenses I will get one sooner or later. 250-300 $/€ street price is a good offer for such a lens, IMO.

Yeah, its a very good price and I wonder how this will perform against its tried and tested older brother the 10-22. ???
Those early images look good but I highly doubt I'd sidegrade my 10-22mm for this...
..a stop loss, slight loss on the long end, filter size and I do less video than stills.

But for those on aps-c and doesn't have an UWA yet, this could be a solid choice no doubt. Gotta wait for proper reviews.
Tsk! Come on son..

That seems to be the UK price across the board.  I think that Canon have realised they can achieve a 40% markup by charging £ for $ in the UK.  The same goes for the 16-35 - £1199 or $1199.  Possibly because we just put up with it or the fact that the canny buggers don't let their warranty transfer continents, so you are left with the choice of pay more and have a warranty, or ship one from the USA, pay import duty, still save money and have no warranty if things go pear shaped.

Hey ho, at least we're out of the recession so can once again afford to live in "rip-off" Britain  ;)

see i'm not sure why people cry about this.

the UK market isn't the US market, and obviously canon can streamline costs and operations far more.  not to mention, Im' sure they feel they have to have a certain pricing model in the US.

This lens costs in Japan 46000 yen - the native country where it's made, it's not made the US.  so why do some care what it costs in the states as if canon's marking up in other countries? o.O

46000 yen = 270 sterling

it just so happens that 46000 Yen = 450 USD, which I'm sure canon looks at and goes, no we have to drop the price down for this market.  that's their prerogative.

I mean heck if you are going to bemoan a companies practices, at least get your facts straight.

I wonder if this will be better and cheaper than my Sigma 10-20 f4-5.6....

The muppet reference made me smile, thanks for that!  :)

Here in the Netherlands (and other € countries) it's introduced at €269 (218.99 GBP according to Google). Shipping within the European Union is exempt from import duties, so you could try and find a Dutch shop willing to ship to the UK. I assume the warranty Canon has in Europe is a "European" one?

Very interesting....

I can do ultra-wide with the 16-35 II on the 5D3 and it's great. But, the best I can do on the Rebel is the manual-focus 14 mm Bower. And manually focusing on the Rebel isn't really easy for my old eyes through the viewfinder.

I'd chalk this lens up to a great performer at a reasonable price, kind of like the 40/2.8. Which I bought. Didn't need a 40, I have several ways to get a similar focal length, but I bought it anyway. It now sits happily on the 10D that I bought back from the person to whom I sold it several years ago. My first DSLR.

As for those images from the 16-35/4, holy carp on a cracker. Very interesting also!

They look pretty good! Keep in mind that the photos posted.. Most are using around f8. Much higher than wide open.

Comparing just specs.. The 10-22mm has USM, whole stop wider, more range, metal mount(better build quality?), distance scale, better placement of zoom and focus rings (imo). The 10-18mm has IS, STM (much slower than USM), less range, much slower, plastic mount. Price differences are significant but, think I'll be keeping my 10-22mm for a bit longer. 
Really liking the sharp and contrasty pics though!

Yeah, mine too. I'm mostly shooting landscape w/ it and the 70D and if I want to upgrade somewhere down the long road, I'd go full frame plus an EF UWA.

Yet the 10-18mm is looking good IMO, mainly the price, STM + DPAF(future rebels?) for video works, and being an entry-level for canon. Lets see how this will compare w/ 3rd party UWAs' in its segment.

By the way:
Tsk! Come on son..

Did someone really question why people in the UK are annoyed at the marked up prices and then go on to prove that the UK is paying a good sum more than all other countries as back up for their point...?
I have never bought a camera or lens in a UK high street shop and that is the reason why. I will go in and try out everything in Jessops as it's the best way to get a feel of a camera/lens, but I'll buy it off Amazon or the likes.

Hi Tom

I’m curious what you mean, so I’ll ask (neutrally) – when you wrote ‘can do ultra-wide with 16-35mm on 5D3’ but ‘best .. on Rebel is the man focus 14 Bower’… do you mean, these are your current lenses?  Or lenses that meet a certain criteria for you?  Have you tried other UWA lenses on your cameras?

I have used the 17-40mm L on FF (borrowing a FF), and quite liked it – but the corner sharpness (even when stopped down) did not match what lenses designed for APS-C could achieve in the corners.  The 16-35mm L was too big and expensive for my liking. I don’t need or use f/2.8 for UWA anyway.  F/5.6 is plenty for what I use and need.

On my 7D I have used a Canon 10-22mm (borrowed) and owned a decent copy of the Sigma 10-20mm f/4-5.6, which was ‘reasonably’ sharp –at the corners.  I now own the notably better Sigma 8-16mm, which is definitely sharper – even at 8mm in the corners, and has much lower CA than either the Canon 10-22mm or the Sigma 10-20mm versions.  Plus that extra 2mm makes a real distance… I love ultra wide landscapes in particular!

I am impressed by the MTF charts for both Canon’s new UWA lenses – well done Canon, and at decent prices (esp the 10-18mm STM’s price).  I don’t plan on replacing my Sigma 8-16mm even though I’d love it to have IS/OS (it’s just that good optically… plus still the widest zoom UWA lens available).  But I’m glad for others… and particularly can imagine many landscape photographers will be very happy with the EF 16-35mm f/4 L IS (and it will probably also be very good for many others eg architecture, etc).

Happy shooting everyone!

Paul

I'm not a brand-fanatic. What I do appreciate is using my 7D and 350D cameras along with a host of lenses & many accessories to capture quality photos, and share with friends.
