Great little lens

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.
Excerpt: While not as wide or fast as the other micro 4/3 options, this lens is sharp, compact, versatile, and relatively inexpensive. It is fast becoming one of my favorite lenses. It pairs extremely well with my OMD-EM5II.
Excerpt: I'm recently making the move from my Canon to lighter weight M4/3. So far happy with my first Olympus the em 5 mkII - quite a camera. I'm used to wide angle lenses being high contrast and really SHARP - the Canon 10-22 EFS (NOT an L series - the Oly 'pro' equivalent) is tack sharp as an example.
