I've a Canon EF-S 10-18mm review just written up.

http://www.northlight-images.co.uk …enses/canon_efs​10-18.html (external link)

That's quite a nasty flare on that street lamp shot. How does it compare to the other UWA lenses you have? The rest looks good, I didn't notice any CA and distortion seems acceptable too. Thanks for the review!

That is disappointing. Ugly.

Here is the new EW-73C hood for this lens. It does look deep for an UWA: http://www.bhphotovide​o.com …001_ew_73c_lens​_hood.html (external link)

Thanks Mike. :)

Yes, it does look deep.. wonder if it would cause any vignetting?

Hope it's of some interest.
I've still got a few more pics to sort, and some RAW samples.

Thanks a lot Keith.

The flare is noticeable in several of the darker street shots where the street light is so bright.

We've hardly had any sun since I got the lens, so I'd like to repeat it in daylight ;-)a

The only lens I'm truly happy about having the sun in the shot is the EF15 2.8 fisheye which is incredibly flare resistant. The EF8-15 can handle it, but with any such shots I know I'm likely to have to do a bit of fixing afterwards.

The EF14 2.8L II is fairly well controlled, as is the TS-E17 - but I'm careful to keep those big front elements well shaded, because there will be flare and a general 'veiling' from light scatter.

For the cheapest lens I've ever bought, the 10-18 is rather good with plenty of sharpness and contrast. I don't have any other EF-S lenses to compare it with, so I'm curious to see the results from the more quantitative reviews.

updated review info

I just added a few more pics since the sun came out ;-)a

One has the sun just out of the frame and doesn't show too much flare.

I also looked at the sun on the front element, well to the side and couldn't see any issues

Well, not to be a downer but I'm not overly impressed with the iQ from the sample shots in the review. It is a handy lens for the crop and decent quality I think. Probably close to the 18-55. But I won't be trading my 10-22 in for it for the difference in cost.

Is there a sample thread yet, I get mine in 2 weeks or so :)

There is, but I'm not sure why people put those up before it's even released. Anyway, it's here: https://photography-on-the.net …/showthread.php​?t=1377276

Some sunny weather would be helpful, but I have to say that it's impressed me for a relatively cheap lens

Thanks for sharing!

The wanting never ends. The budget ends, oh yes, but not the wanting.

Odd... canon's store shows it as in stock and it gives no warns about it not being released or it would be delayed shipping. I could add it to cart and start the checkout processes without any warnings. I did not attempt to actually place the order.

Thanks again.

OT: I see that you're from Leicester so I'd like to congratulate for The Jester's(Mark Selby) victory in the Snooker World Championship. I was happy for him but a bit disappointed cause he defeated my favourite Ronnie O'Sullivan.

Mode OT Off.

2 RAW files added

I've added two RAW files to download, to the review.

It's difficult to get any meaningful impression of image quality with 720 px wide JPEGs on the web, and I deliberately turned of any sharpening for the 100% crops, even though I'd never do this in real use of the lens.

If you are careful about sharpening and processing the images (fixing CA for example), the lens can produce very reasonable results.

I'm sure you know this, but the use of a polarizing filter at the wide end of this lens will be a bit problematic.
