And 52mm filters.
Is it as "SOLID" as the 14-42 zoom?
To be fair, that is the locked position. It is very similar to the 14-42.
Lovely product shot, BTW.
I've had the 9-18mm for only two days, and have hardly had a chance to take into the field on my E-P2. But your mention of the 52mm filter mount spurred me to action. I attached a 52mm Nikon 4T close-up lens, and got this photo at f=9mm, manually focusing from a distance of not much more than an inch or two. The "bush" is actually only three inches tall.

what's that yellow thing beside the lens???
I am just wishing its price comes down to 500ish
I received mine yesterday from Japan. What a ripper little lens.
A couple of photos at 9mm and 18mm unedited except for a minor crop off the bottom. Both shots are 13 seconds at f/8.0 and ISO200. Obviously nightime shots!
Much less flare than from my Panasonic 20mm f/1.7 shooting the same scene and the detail is outstanding. This is a cracker of a lens.
I'd be interested to see how well it looks when focusing on a smaller subject close and showing lots of background. That was an area where I felt let down by it as the boke wasn't to my taste ...
careful, almost sounds like you're saying that the Pana 20mm isn't gods gift to lenses ... that just won't do in some circlesMuch less flare than from my Panasonic 20mm f/1.7 shooting the same scene and the detail is outstanding. This is a cracker of a lens.
Please keep posting pictures with the 9-18 lens. I am very interested in this lens, but am also considering the 7-14 from panasonic. I've seen some great images with the 7-14, but not so much with the 9-18 yet. But of course it is too new so... more pictures please
I wonder if Olympus managed to make this lens less out of control and more light proof than that the 14-42 (they list that thing for ~250 Euros! ).
Kiama Rock Pool a few minutes "first light" (when I should have still been asleap). The EXIF details have been stuffed up in this thanks to the new Olympus Viewer 2 software.
This shot was taken around 6:10 am this morning. First light was at 6:18.
Shot at the 9mm end for 15 seconds at f/11 and ISO100.
Olympus has a LH-55B Lens Hood that's specifically made for this lens. It's mentioned on this page http://www.olympus-global.com/en/new...203zuikoe.html
Thanks for these pics - would like to see some more examples.
I did a very quick and dirty test of the new 9-18 zoom, using the Lumix 20/1.7 as a base line
Pictures were taken minutes apart, both at F6.3, roughly 1/500s, handheld
These are straight out of Lightroom with a tweek on exposure, brightness, contrast to even them out a bit. Roughly 10% crops of the 100% image
First pic is the Oly (18mm), second the Lumix(20mm). The Lumix has better contrast, but overall the little zoom is doing well.
