    Hmmm - the 9-18 is £360 on Amazon (genuine UK stock) and with £100 cashback it makes it £260 net. I've had the 9-18 twice before (yes really) and have twice sold it in favour of the Panasonic 7-14. I like the P7-14, but the flare is sometimes bothersome and you can't argue with the 9-18's size and performance. OTOH, 7mm vs 9mm is significant so I don't see me ditching the Panasonic but at £260 having both isn't so much of a pain to bear! Oh I dunno - GAS at its best. Will it make me take better photographs? ... I doubt it!

    I notice an anomaly.
    On the Olympus page it mentions £100 cashback for 9-18mm
    but on the amazon.co.uk it mentions only £75 cashback from Olympus
  4. Before the promotion started Amazon were selling the lens for £340, and now it's up to £360. A bit sneaky really!

    Yup, I wanted to get the 9-18mm during last year's summer promotion but I left it too late and missed out, so I've snapped one up nice and early this time around. It's gonna be a birthday present from the other half. I'm allowed to test it now, though I don't get to call it mine for a couple of months. I get my grubby claws into it just in time for my summer travels.
