I agree with Heather,...it's small, light, inexpensive, offers several important 'views' or focal lengths and is nicely sharp at f8,..so what's not to like?

....Well actually, I don't like the lack of depth of field provision, but that's another subject!

Uhm: which kit lens are you referring too? The 16mm kit or the zoom? Or both!


Cheers, Macjim.

Dear Macjim,....you don't think that "Tests and comparison between the 18-55mm kit lens and two m-mount Voigtlander lenses" might offer some kind of clue?...:cool:

Well, the first entry in this conversation had no text so I'm only going by the conversation heading. So there's no, as far as I can see, any mention of voightlander lenses. Could be a problem with this app!


Cheers, Macjim.

Just checked soundimageplus' text to use as a quote and the text appeared mentioning the Voightlander, but it's blank at the start of this discussion so, it's a fault with this Tapatalk App.


Cheers, Macjim.

Most folk call the 18-55 the kit lens and the 16mm the pancake lens. And they call the 18-200 too expensive :)
