Quick note for US readers: $100 savings on the NEX-6 with kit lens that now sells for $799 at CameraLand (Click here).
Our friends at Photozone (Click here) tested the Sony E 10-18mm f/4 OSS lens. And they actually like the lens: “Upon first contact, you are positively surprised about the high build quality. All-metal lens body are fairly rare these days. The lens is capable of delivering sharp results at medium aperture settings.” But they also shared their thoughts about one quality issue: “while the build quality of the lens is very fine, we continue to be concerned about the centering quality of Sony products. Ever since we started the NEX tests, we are either terribly unlucky or the centering is as bad as it is”
I hope Sony is reading this…and improves the mentioned issue.
