Yeah, I know it's a pretty good price for a UWA! A good business decision by Canon... entry level UWA for their crop sensors, hopefully encouraging people to upgrade in future to full frame or other more expensive lenses.

Wow...I left Canon in part because all of their UWA combos were big. 5D II + 16-35L II (which is what I had) or even the smallest APS-C (SL1 + 10-22) were just massive.

But dang...this 10-18 paired with an SL1 and the 40 STM Pancake would make for a very compelling travel combo. Add a 100 f2 (which I prefer over the 85 1.8) and you're still travelling fairly light and have the major FLs covered.

Well, a Panny 14-45 is $260, but yes, in general I agree....
14-45 is a far cry from 10-18 on APSC (16-29mm equivalent). Heck, 14-45 isn't really even that wide at the wide end.

I do agree that m43 gear in general tends to be very overpriced. It's actually one of those things that's making me reconsider going back to full-frame. The Olympus 75mm f/1.8 costs almost as much as a Canon 135 f/2L, for example, even though it's capable of nowhere near the bokeh of the full-fame lens.

Generalizations are difficult here. For example, the Olympus 12-40 f/2.8 cost $1000 while the comparable Nikon and Canon 24-70 f/2.8 lenses cost $700-800 more.

I was only replying to Art's post regarding the cost of m43 lenses - not comparing the lenses.... :)

I'm amazed how small the 10-22 USM actually is, especially compared to FF equivalents. The 5D II + 16-35L II is a real mitt full but the SL1/10-22 is so light and tiny I had to check my hand to make sure it was still there. I might buy the 10-18 for my wife so she'll stop borrowing my 10-22...
