    10-18

    Saved for another lens, have the usual 18-35, then an old 75-300, plus a Sigma 150 - 600 c . Thinking of getting a 10-18 for some wide angle landscapes, anybody got one & what do you think?

    I don’t have one now but I found it very good and it’s in many top ten lists of cost effective lenses to own.

      I bought a 10-18 a while ago and have found it to be an invaluable lense to have around. Very pleased with it and have no complaints or problems at all. It compliments the 24-70 on my 5D3 nicely.

        Super wideangle lenses can be amazing and very creative. They also need a bit of thought when using as a tilted back will make those verticals converge like nothing on earth. Great if that's what you wanted, a real pain if you didn't. Also good for making a foreground object huge against the background.

          I've got one but don't actually use it very often. In fact, I generally prefer to still use the 15-85 and stitch two or three images together if & when required, mainly due to having the kind of issues that Colin mentions above.

          Having said that, perhaps I should just get out and use it more in the instances where it might be useful!

            I don't have the 10-18mm but I do have Sigma's 10-20mm and I wouldn't be without it. As said lenses in this category do take some though to use properly. It's very easy to end up with acres of blank foreground and even the slightest tilt causes considerable convergence/divergence of the verticals. Distortion of perspective is quite impressive but if you use it to your advantage you can end up with some very effective results.

            At 10mm:

            At 20mm (18 would be similar):

              Thanks all for your contribution, some great shots from Nigel, I am buying while in New York (B&H of course), so will have plenty to practice on. Dave

                I can also recommend the Sigma 10-20. I sold it after buying a 5D(3) and it wasn’t compatible.

                  I too had the Sigma 10-20 when I was using a crop sensor Canon. It is a great WA Lens.

                    I'm sure you will have made a good choice. I have the 10-22 which I bought one month before the 10-18 came out. I have found the UWA essential for many landscape and architectural shots; and if you want to capture the whole of a rainbow for example.
                    Many have said that the 10-18 is as sharp as the 10-22 and I'd have probably bought the 10-18 had it been a month later, but I'm very pleased with the UWA lens I have.

                      I read somewhere that, if anything, the 10-18 was (is) slightly better in some respects to the 10-22. I bought my 10-22 a long while ago now but have always loved it; I was gobsmacked, in fact, as soon as I tried it out. It is also a stop faster than the 10-18 as well as having that bit extra at the longer end. Both though are very good lenses.
