Bjørn's Rørslett's Overview:

Heavier and bulkier than its MF relative, the faster 18 mm is troubled with residual colour aberrations and these flaws tend to make its colour rendition dull, greyish, and devoid of sparkle. High-lights clearly show visible fringing. I briefly tested this lens and didn't like it at all.
Other users report much better experiences and there is always the possibility I tested a bad sample.

Bjørn's Rating:

3 (F5)
