Soft, and it stopped working

  • 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.

  • Excerpt: when I tried out this lens in a camera store in California, it seemed fabulous -- exactly what I needed for my Black Magic Pocket.

Lens Hood for 9-18 zoom

  • Excerpt: What can you say - it is a lens hood. Fits securely on lens. I think this hood is very over priced at $25.00 and Olympus should be ashamed for not supplying the lens hood with this lens, especiaslly for a lens in this price range.

  • Summary: I am just an ordinary picture taker, thought this lens might be what I wanted for some wide angle shots. I can not believe I spent this kind of money for a lens that seems comparable to the kit lens 14/42

Great size and weight

  • Excerpt: I wanted a wide angle lens for frequent interior architecture shots and was impressed by the write-ups I've read on this unit. Although the sharpness is OK I failed to find enough to warrant the price. I love the weight and size but don't like the plasticky feel of the lens or its aesthetic.
  • Pros: Lightweight, Size
  • Cons: Cheap Feel, Poor in Low Light

Waste of money

  • Summary: Save a bundle. According to reviews from a large number of web sites, the Olympus M.Zuiko Digital ED 9-18mm 1:4.0-5.6 is fairly soft near the edges of the frame at all focal lengths and apertures and also suffers from bad chromatic aberration.

Schärfe war nicht so toll

Jochen Steinhardt, Amazon

  • Summary: Vielleicht habe ich ein Montagsmodell bekommen, aber die Schärfe war weit hinter meinem 14-150mm und für so ein teures Objektiv hätte ich mehr erwartet.
