Pros: Very strong image quality / compact / light weight
Cons:
Build quality is not as heavy duty as many other lenses in the same price range.

So far I've only tested this lens at f/8 on a tripod - but that is how I will use it. With my copy the lens is sharp in the middle of the frame at all focal lengths. The best performance is at 12mm where it is excellent in terms of image quality with strong performance across almost the entire frame on the a6000. Only at the very outermost edge does the performance drop off.

At 14-18mm the IQ goes from excellent to very good+ not having quite the same sharpness and contrast as the 12mm setting but I'm being very critical.

At 10mm the IQ is excellent across about of the frame before it begins to fall of at the edges. Still very usable and I've owned or tested a number of other expensive wide angle and wide angle zoom lenses that were not as good.

I paid $750 for this lens which seems a bit high given the type of construction. It is not built like a Canon L lens. However, the image quality is better than several Canon L lenses that I have either owned or rented which cost about the same if not more. Bottom line strong image quality by any measure and well suited to professional work. Beautiful contrast and color on the a6000. Treat it kindly and you should be very happy with the 10-18mm.

Pros: Sharpness, lightweight, and build quality
Cons:
Price

It is a miracle lens. All in sudden Nex cameras can have decent SWA zoom lens. Well I paid 1k once it was out.
