Perhaps I should undertake a "one camera, one lens" project with this lens. I find learning how to "see wide" quite tricky, and it can certainly test the dynamic range choices we have to make because of the field of view. Bolted it to the 5iii for a bicycle ride last evening. Not terribly happy with my results, but live and learn. I'm way more comfortable at the long end, so perhaps just practice practice practice is in order.

All jpegs from camera, some pretty rudimentary editing in snapseed on the phone.

I can tell that pic was taken with an Olympus. Love the colors!!
Sometimes I want to trade my Panasonic 7-14mm for the 8-18mm.

Received my used copy today. Seems pretty sharp, though a little more scratched and used then what the pictures/seller conveyed. Oh well, its kind of like a new car- you are relieved after the first scratch.

Went for a quick walk in a spot I've taken a lot of photos at and got completely different shots. It's a refreshing experience compared to the last 9 years of pretty standard focal lengths. A lot more crouching, using the articulating screen, portrait orientation, level guide, etc. Excited to use this thing!

Took the G9 and 8-18 on a 3,300 foot bike ride. Legs are tired and luckily didn't crash and break camera or body
