I bought the Oly 9-18 lens about a month ago after doing a lot of research between the 9-18 and the Pana 7-14. I used the 9-18 over a weekend trip to shoot fall colors, and the results were surprisingly bad. The edges of the frame at 9mm were very distorted and almost blurry. I could crop that out, but that defeats the purpose of a UWA lens. I had the same results with OOC jpegs and raw images processed in LR4 and Oly Viewer. I returned the lens the following week. I have seen some nice images out of that lens and everyone else seems to love it. Do you think I got the infamous bad copy? The focal length is right in my wheelhouse and I'd be willing to try another lens. Suggestions? Thanks, and happy thanksgiving!
