Olympus's ultrawide zoom for Micro Four Thirds offers impressive image quality plus fast and silent autofocus, in a tiny package that makes it easily the smallest lens of its type.
Exceptionally small and lightweight, Very good image quality, Fast, practically silent autofocus, Essentially no falloff/vignetting
Relatively high chromatic aberration, Corners somewhat soft wide open (but sharpen up on stopping down), Slightly plastic build for the price
This lens costs around £480 and is possibly the smallest and lightest interchangeable lens available covering this angle of view.
Compact, lightweight design, Excellent resolution at f/8 throughout the zoom range., Excellent resistance to flare and ghosting, Fast AF
Chromatic Aberrations at 18mm, Resolution towards the edge of the frame at 9mm
Unlike most wide angle lenses, this one is small and light. The quality is great. One advantage of this system is that a f5.6 aperture gives a reasonable depth of field so you can actually use the lens wide open.
Not As Wide As Other Wide
This is an excptionally good lens for use underwater. It has the wide-angle perspective generally considered to be the best for undewater use. If your camera uses micro 4/3 lenses, and it fits into your underwater housing, it is a very good choice. Optical quality is excellent!
Easy To Use, Lightweight, Reliable, Underwater Use
I bought this for interior and landscape architectural photography. It exceeded my expectations, for this price. Solid investment that has more than paid for itself in my business.
The Zuiko 9-18mm provides dramatic ultra-wide angle performance at an affordable price. The lens is compact, light and seems sturdy. Images are sharp with vivid colors.
Great at capturing wide angle images, landscapes, and even portraits with somewhat unusual angles. It is very lightweight and portable and works well with the E-520.
Perhaps not quite as sharp as some of the higher end lenses but more than acceptable for the price. Images tend to show barrell distortion at the widest angle. Sometimes difficult to use with a flash indoors at the widest end as shadows caused by on camera flash are visible.
