  4. A few more from the ZD 9-18mm in colour and b&w. You can get this lens to flare a little but I don't have a hood for it and for an ultra-wide lens when the sun in the frame the flare is very well contained. Size aside there is no reason I can think of to trade this in for the M Zuiko m4/3 9-18mm.

    Thanks for these and for your thread, Nic! I'm definitely a wide angle fan.:cloud-9-039:
     
  6. Thanks BB, me too. If there's not a random old SLR lens attached to my Pen it will more often than not be this one.

    I just got one of these, and am starting to try it out on my G5. I already had the DMW-MA1 adapter from back when I bought the Olympus 35mm macro lens (before I found out it wouldn't AF on my cameras.)

    After I shifted from wide-angle to normal lenses for landscapes, I thought I didn't need a wide-angle anymore. But I've found several situations where I really *do* need one. I sold off a 14/2.5 and a couple of kit lenses to pay for the 9-18, which seemed more versatile. I don't really need a *fast* wide lens, since I'm usually trying to maximize DOF.

    Anyway--test shots to come soon.

    Not a masterpiece, but a decent result for one of the main uses I'll have for this lens--"wide-angle macro" or "wide-angle close-up" photos of plants and animals with their surroundings.

    I hope nobody minds a cross-post, also on the e-pL1 images thread.

    This is the four-thirds Zuiko 9-18 on my e-pL1, SOOC Jpeg.
