Review: Canon EF-S 10-18 f/4.5-5.6 IS STM from DXOMark

DXOMark has completed their review of the Canon EF-S 10-18 f/4.5-5.6 IS STM lens. This relatively inexpensive lens has been receiving a lot of accolades for its performance/price value ratio.

From DXOMark:
“This lens isn’t a replacement for the existing, near pro-level EF-S 10-22mm f3.5-4.5 USM; it doesn’t match the range, speed (or build-quality) but with a similar optical performance, lower price and quiet STM AF motor this lens certainly has its place in Canon’s line-up. Knowing it will appeal to both stills and budding moviemakers it’s likely to be a popular addition, but it doesn’t really plug any holes in the maker’s range.”

Video Review: Canon EF-S 10-18 f/4.5-5.6 IS STM

Kai from DigitalRev has completed his video review of the brand new Canon EF-S 10-18 f/4.5-5.6 IS STM lens. This $299 lens for APS-C shooters seems to be getting a lot of praise, most of which is based around its extremely affordable price.

I have used the lens a couple of times and find it to be nearly as good as the EF-S 10-22 f/3.5-4.5, especially as an ultra wide angle walk around lens in cities. Pair it with an EOS Rebel SL1, and you have a pretty good light weight hiking setup as well.

Review: Canon EF-S 10-18 f/4.5-5.6 IS STM

Review: Canon EF-S 10-18 f/4.5-5.6 IS STM

Northlight has posted their initial review of the new Canon EF-S 10-18 f/4.5.5-6 IS STM lens. As you would expect the lens appears to be a very good deal at $299, although it’s not going to set any benchmarks for optical performance. It is however, a great completement to your APS-C stills or video kit if you don’t need ultra wide angle very often. If you do, there are better and more expensive options out there.

Says Northlight:
“If you’re not used to ‘shooting wide’ then this lens is a very welcome addition to Canon’s line-up. At appreciably less cost than the EF-S10-22, the 10-18mm surprised me with its build quality and optical performance. The image stabilisation adds to its general purpose usefulness and partly makes up for its relatively restricted aperture.”
