Just received my Oly 9-18mm

Great lens...I wish it were a little wider and a little faster *BUT*...it's unbeatable for its size and price!!! I got into the whole M4/3 game because I wanted a small system...the 9-18 figures in that philosophy exceptionally well!

It replaced my old Canon 16-35L II (one of the most respected and quite expensive lenses out there) and I have no huge complaints.


Mu-43 Hall of Famer

I've only used it around the house so far but its pretty neat. Wide, compact, cheap(ish), Images look fine for my modest needs, I've got a Samyang 7.5mm fish-eye and SLRMagic 8mm for comparison - the Oly is not as wide but the AF helps; even though people will often say a wide gets most things in focus when you stop down, I seem to have a knack for missing focus or being overly optimistic at my MF close-focusing skills.

By way of comparison, my D700 w/ MF 18mm Nikkor is a bigger combo.
