    The essential super wide-angle lens for the NEX. Kind of a self-portrait this one.

    Just to add to the festivities, here are a few images I shot with the SEL1018 this weekend, hiking out to see Feather Falls near Oroville in northern California. The weather wasn't the best, but it's a 3-hour round trip to get out there, hiking over some fairly rough terrain, so I didn't mind the cool temperatures too much. There's a platform the Forest Service built out at the falls, so you can't back up to get a wider view. Here's where an ultra-wide really shines.

    And on the hike out and back, it came in handy for a few other shots.

    I'm very pleased with this lens, and I've ordered a neutral density filter for it, so that I can get that smooth waterfall effect as seen in this shot I took with the SELP1650.

    Yeah well, don't ask me how my legs felt afterwards. I had to take several doses of Bombay Sapphire after I got home last night. :p

    Great showcase, Woodworks!

    I can't complain about corner performance at these sizes (lesser UWAs show smearing even at resolutions smaller than these).

    Very nice shots. These smaller cameras help getting out to these great places.

    In my thread about this lens I forgot to mention it's very nice ability to work against light, here some examples and some more test pics for archive:

    Could not resist getting this baby, despite the risks. It seems to do a good job so far :)

    Great shots! Is there a legacy Minolta lens that gets images like these?

    Nice shots indeed. The widest rectilinear Minolta lens is a 17mm and that's at the long end of the Sony 10-18mm. The widest legacy lens of any make has a focal length of 12mm (e.g. a Voigtländer 12mm 1:5.6 for Leica M or M39) and that comes more near the 10mm of the Sony.

    If you like fisheye, you could go with that as well - there is an 8mm around.

    Has anyone with this lens tried it on an A7 / A7R ?
    Steve Huff recommends it even for the A7 (r).
