Overview

M.Zuiko ED 9-18mm f4.0-5.6 at a Glance

Until now, super-wide-angle lenses tended to be big, heavy, and expensive, making it difficult for most camera users to take advantage of them. The ZUIKO DIGITAL ED 9-18mm F4.0-5.6 promises to change all this. With its ultra compact and lightweight design and the outstanding portability, thanks to the DSA (Dual Super Aspherical) lens, available only with the Four Thirds System, this lens will make super-wide-angle photography friendlier and more affordable. Despite its compact size — it's just 49.5mm long and weighs a mere 155 grams — this lens boasts a long focusing range equivalent to 18-36 mm on a 35-mm camera lens.

    This lens is a great alternative to previous Ultra wide-angle zoom lens designs that have traditionally been very heavy…and very expensive. The Olympus 9-18 zoom is neither. This makes it a great addition to your camera bag. With 2x magnification, it captures the full panoramic beauty of both natural landscapes and man-made architecture – great for interior shots, as well as close-up portraits of friends and family. It just might become one of your favorite lenses.

  • FLEXIBILITY WITH DSA

    The combination of two DSA, or Dual Sided Aspherical, lenses, and aspherical, ED and HR glass helps minimize distortion and aberration and delivers excellent image quality at whatever focal length you choose. This lock button you see on the side of the lens is depressed when you want to collapse it for storage.

  • BAYONET CONNECTION 
LENS HOOD

    There is a bayonet connection lens hood available for this lens – and if you’re expecting to be doing a lot of outdoor shooting in bright conditions, the hood will really help prevent strong side or stray light from causing unwanted ghosting aberration. This lens does have a 52mm filter thread and readily accepts UV, Polarizer, or just plain old protective filters if you need them.

Love hate relationship
I don't think there's a cheaper wide angle AF zoom lens available in any other system to date (don't quote me on this, I just haven't found one myself). That being said, this lens does the job of lenses 2 to 5 times its price (maybe even more), but it's far from perfect. The major drawback to this lens is its atrocious CA issues. There were times where I couldn't fix an otherwise perfect image in post. I got a bit creative, though, and now I have half of my shots with this lens in BnW, just to avoid the frustrations of dealing with it. I never use this lens beyond 12mm. In fact, if I could have a 9mm f4.0 prime lens, I would replace it in a heart beat. The collapsible feature is a nightmare when you catch yourself reaching for your camera to catch a fleeting moment just to realize you're lens needs to be expanded in order to turn on the darn camera. This lens is also not the sharpest in my collection, not even close. It sharpens up a hair when stepped down a stop, but not much. As much bad as I have to say about this lens, though, it's still a huge value compared to what's out there. I can't shoot at a 18mm FOV for cheaper and this lens doesn't do a "bad" job per se, just not perfect. Funny thing is, all of my favorite shots are with this lens. Not my long tele, my kit lens, my $500 prime, or any of my other prime jewels... nope. This lens has produced all of my personal best!

One of my favorite lenses of all time
I have had many lenses over the past 30 years - mostly Nikon - from fast single focal length to large and heavy tele zooms. This is one of my favorites for many reasons. Very compact, very quiet focusing and very fast focusing (except in low light.) Of course it has a little trouble in low light and that should not be a surprise. In normal to bright conditions, this lens can't be better. It is very sharp, even wide open, and any distortion is handled via in-camera and desktop Olympus editing software. Highly recommended if you don't need a very fast lens.

Great IQ but failed after less than 2 years
For 700 bucks I expected this little lens to last longer. Sure the images it produces look great, but even though I've treated it with respect it now fails to focus (neither auto nor manual) when zoomed in towards the 18mm range. Camera body gives a range of error messages, but requires a reboot of the camera or lens to restore operation. Apparently this is a known problem with the lens as there are a number of reports detailing this issue online.
