    Can we skip the information bit and press on with images ?
    Cant wait to see what good stuff you can squeeze out of it.
    It will probably be the shots you take that will sway me one way or another.
    To buy or not to buy :rolleyes:

    Yup. I do the unboxing videos tongue-in-cheek; they're silly mostly.

    I've gotta get the V1 back from my niece before I use the 18.5mm. Hopefully others will post their samples.

    Very nice photos, mnhoj....thank you for posting them.

    I think I'm going to have to get this lens sooner, rather than later.

    Love the sample shots. Still trying to keep my powder dry for the future 32mm that was pre-announced, but the 18 is certainly tempting...

    Nice shots John.
    I have to agree with you on the 18.5mm reminding you of the 20mm.
    Great blog btw.

    Plenty of sharpness and contrast. Nicely sized and priced.
