Excerpt: I've only had a chance to do a short test run with the lens, but it seems to focus quickly and accruately. That and good sharpness are what i primarily am interested in. It isn't the smallest lens I own, but it it certainly light!
Pros: Consistent Output, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight
Excerpt: 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.
Summary: This has become my favorite lens for my Olympus E-M5 Mk II camera. It stays on as my primary lens. Terrific color rendition and contrast. I never realized how valuable this focal range was until I had it. The image quality it produces is very satisfying. Highly recommended.
Excerpt: Bought this as a smaller companion to the bulky Olympus 7-14mm f/2.8. While the OIympus offers a more robust body and a wider angle, this little lens can be taken anywhere without a second thought and it delivers great images.
Excerpt: Great optical quality. Really good walk around wide angle lens. To its farthest zoom level is very usable and close to the perspective perceived by our eyes. An then, the wide side is impressive, great for architecture, museum, or just the wide angle effect! Compact, light well built.
Excerpt: The M.Zuiko 9-18mm lens is light, compact, and easy to carry. I can have it with me when I need it. I did not think that I would use it as often yet it fits many more situations from landscape, interiors, to street shots. One of the great advantages is the ease of handling because of its size.
Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight
Summary: This is a superb lens. It is equivalent to 18-36mm on a 35mm camera. Thus it replaces three fixed focal length lenses (20, 24, and 35 in 35mm). I use in on Panasonic bodies and it works perfectly. It is very small and convenient.
Summary: As of July, 2015 there are only 3 ultra wide zoom options for micro four-thirds: this lens (Olympus 9-18mm), the Panasonic 7-14mm F4, and the Olympus 7-14mm F2.8. I chose the 9-18mm. It's small, light, acceptedly sharp, and takes filters.
