    Just curious if anyone can give any impressions, etc. on the Oly 9-18 vs. Canon 17-40 on full frame.

    I'm thinking of getting the 9-18. I'd really like UWA again, but funds are tight, so I can't afford a "play thing."

    I loved my Canon 17-40, so I'm just looking for feedback from anyone who has used both lenses. Not on CA or contrast (which I am pretty sure the 17-40 would win on), but more just on joy of shooting, and maybe also distortion and perspective.

    Looking very much so for subjective input, not speeds and feeds.

    I guess I'm looking to be convinced to spend the cash, so I'm comparing it to a lens I already know ;-)
