New lens tested

NPhoto - - Test Team -

We tested the in­no­va­tive 18-55mm in three key ar­eas of op­ti­cal per­for­mance

SHARP­NESS

A good per­former for a kit lens, scor­ing the best re­sults at the widest end, though the edges are very soft when wide open.

FRING­ING

Con­trolled well across the fo­cal length range but be­comes more of an is­sue at the edges at 18mm at max­i­mum aper­ture.

DIS­TOR­TION

Bar­rel dis­tor­tion is no­tice­able at shorter fo­cal lengths, but it’s not ex­ces­sive. Pin-cush­ion­ing is neg­li­gi­ble at 55mm.
