ejenner said:Just got mine today. Compared to 10-22 and sigma 18-250 (macro) @ 18mm f6.3 and f8.
M 18-150 is the best. More CA than the 10-22, but also better contrast and sharpness.
Seems good though the range @ f6.3. Similar to the Sigma @35mm, better again after 50-70mm.
I find that a lot of my lenses don't seem to follow what I see on TDP, either compared to other lenses or comparing f-stops. I trust forum comments here and POTN much more.
There are also decent sample images you can download that look good at 18mm and are much more in line with what I am seeing.
Actually like this lens more than I thought I would. Sure it's not fast, but very decent at f6.3, small and light for what it is.
I've very happy with my EF-M 18-150 as well. As I noted earlier in this thread, my results are very different (much better) from TDP's copy.
When I have time I plan to do some controlled side by side testing, but in the limited comparisons I've done against my EF-M 15-45 and EF-M 55-200, the 18-150 is better or just as good, both in the center and at the corners. I have my EF-M 55-200 and 15-45 up for sale since I don't feel I need all 3.
