ownership:I own this lens
compared to:Sony 10-18mm f/4 @ 13mm
price paid:€ 385,-
positive:The overall IQ is very good. All metal construction. Manual aperture-ring. Sturdy metal lenshood. Focus-speed and -acccuracy is very good and silent. Flarecontrol.
negative:Slightly less in the corners wide open. Vignette wide open is visible. Much heavier compared to my other Viltrox lenses.
comment:Very nice lens for indoors (real estate, weddings) and outdoors (landscapes, astro). Very affordable option in wide-angle. Excellent quality stopped down from f/2,8 to f/8. The all metal construction gives a far higher feel of quality compared to the price. But the quality is amazing! Best bang for the bucks if you're looking for a fast APS-C wide angle lens.
