Canon EF-S 10-18mm f/4.5-5.6 IS STM Lens Review and Test Results

DxOMark has posted their test results for the Canon EF-S 10-18mm f/4.5-5.6 IS STM lens. They reviewed Canon’s newly announced wide-angle zoom lens, which is currently priced for $299. They say the EF-S 10-18mm f/4.5-5.6 IS STM lens is a good but not great performer.

The Canon EF-S 10-18mm f/4.5-5.6 IS STM lens achieves a DxOMark score of 12 points. The lens produce an average performance and tested with the Canon EOS 70D DSLR camera.  A peak resolution of 8-Mpix on the EOS 70D is a bit low even for a zoom like this.

The new EF-S 10-18mm f/4.5-5.6 IS STM lens offers a 35mm equivalent focal range of 16-29mm and features both a UD lens element and a range of optimised lens coatings, as well as a quiet STM focus motor, 4-stop image stabiliser and a circular iris diaphragm.

Canon EF-S 10-18mm f/4.5-5.6 IS STM vs Tokina AT-X PRO SD 11-16 F2.8 IF DX II Canon vs Sigma 8-16mm F4.5-5.6 DC HSM Canon all three mounted on Canon EOS 70D

From DxOMark review :

Against well-established and highly regarded rival models, such as the pro-level constant-aperture $659 Tokina 11-16mm f2.8 IF DX II and the extreme Sigma 8-16mm f4.5-5.6 DC HSM the new Canon doesn’t look too bad. Peak resolution is just behind both and it has low levels of distortion and vignetting. The wider Sigma has similar levels of chromatic aberration as the Canon, which in turn are both better controlled than the Tokina though that’s perhaps not surprising given the differences in their respective maximum aperture and focal length.
