Yes, but it doesn't provide better results. I tried it, the 1012 part fits in the 1018 with no modifications needed. Like others, I found that the low light performance and color fidelity was worse than the original. So I removed the 1.3 and put the .3 back in.

I suggest it is not worth the experiment, as you risk breaking clips on the bezel.
