Hi,
Which wide lens is the ‘Perfection’ for - low light- situation?
My equipment is: E3- 50-200 SWD, 50 mm 1,8 OM, 28 mm 2,8 OM; I have got in mind 3 lens,,,,,9-18, the economy one; 11-22,,,, the middle one, 7-14,,,,, top league. My rebus is which of the 3 is the sharper of the lot and also will do the job in a very low light situation (indoor & night time, ecct,,,) I took some shot with the 50-200 outside on a bright sunny day and the result are stunning but when use it inside ,,different story – too long and too noise,,
Any information will be appreciated
Regard, Satelio

If you want a wide-angle low light lens then the 11-22mm comes top with aperture range of f2.8 - f3.2, compared to 7-14mm (f4) and 9-18m (f4 - f5.6)

In terms of widest and sharpest the 7-14mm wins on both counts.

9-18mm is smallest, lightest and cheapest, but not water resistant like the other two.

If low light is a real priority and you can get away without such a wide angle (and you have the cash to spare, it's expensive) then the 14-35mm f2 fits the bill, with a constant aperture throughout the range.
