Olympus Zoom Super Wide Angle 9-18mm f/4-5.6 ED Zuiko Zoom Lens for Olympus Digital SLR

You Pay: $549.00
Product Highlights
  • For Four Thirds System
  • DSA (Dual Super Aspherical)

The Olympus 9-18mm f/4-5.6 ED Zuiko Zoom Lens is an ultra compact and lightweight lens that offers a super wide angle zoom range. Optimized for use with Olympus digital SLR cameras, as well as with any other brands that use the Four Thirds system, this lens offers an equivalent focal length of 18-36mm in 35mm terms.

Special optical glass elements, such as DSA (Dual Super Aspherical) glass, are used to correct various types of aberrations. The 100% digital design ensures high-definition performance with clear, crisp images from edge to edge. This lens also boasts impressive close-up shooting capability, allowing users to shoot from as close as 9.8" throughout the entire zoom range.

By incorporating the image-stabilization mechanism into the camera itself (e.g. E-3, E-510, E-520, etc.), this lens enables super-wide-angle handheld shooting without using a tripod even at night.

              Comments about Zoom Super Wide Angle 9-18mm f/4-5.6 ED Zuiko Zoom Lens for Olympus Digital SLR:

              this lens works extremely well with olympus E-620. It is very light and compact, a four thirds advantage over other mainstream lenses. Autofocus
              is very responsive. It has a quality feel even for a standard grade lens. Picture
              quality is very detailed and sharp. I am glad I purchased this lens, it has a
              much wider field than the standard kit 14-42 lens. I have taken several landscape shots in just the first week of owning it, all with fantastic results.
              I hope olympus will continue making four thirds lenses, and bring back some more mid and entry level dslr's.

                  Another great optic by Olympus for not so much money! This lens performs better than what one would expect for the amount of money spent. Though I paid only about 15% less than list price of [$] it is a bargain for such fine optics. I use this lens for primarily landscape shots and the depth of field is fantastic. Without stopping down to f22 you can get everything from foreground to background sharp. I have found almost no vignetting with great edge sharpness. About the only thing I would have liked would have been a bit faster lens but then again, price dictates what a manufacturer will offer at any price point. Would I recommend this lens? With 5 stars!!!!

                      I wanted a lens to take wide shots of seascapes in my area. This is just what I wanted. It is light and fits in my kit. The pictures are crisp, but are better with a filter because of the water element in the photos I take. Without the water the lens is great.

                        Compact but mighty wide-angle lens. Performing really well with my E-410 and creating amazing wide-angle shots for both landscape and interior photos. This lens are mandatory for any photographer with ambition to increase dramatic appeal of the outdoor shots or enhance the spatial impression for an interior photo. Compact size and a good price (at B&H) complete a solid package. This is probably the best lens out of Olympus' standard quality line-up.

                          I bought this super wide angle for my Olympus 510 dslr on the first day of my visit in New York. It turned out to be a beloved companion in my efforts to catch the skyscrapers, bridges, and views on camera. The quality is good and the price is low, so this is a very fine bargain for Olympus dslr-ovners.

                              Comments about Zoom Super Wide Angle 9-18mm f/4-5.6 ED Zuiko Zoom Lens for Olympus Digital SLR:

                              This wide angle 9-18mm Zuiko lens works really well attached to my Olympus E30 and E5. Impressed with the fast and accurate focus. Avisable to always use a uv protector filter as dirt easily lodges at the circumference of the front edge of lens.
                              Well worth the purchase for the price! Easy to mount, very lightweight. Produces sharp images at f8 consistantly. I purchased this 9-18mm lens to compliment my 12-60mm swd lens when an extra wide angle shot was required .

                                    I'll use this lens in my future travels. I've been on all seven continents and should have had this lens on each of the trips. Everyone who enjoys photography should have this lens as an addition to their normal lens.B&H lives up to its committment and reliability.[@]

                                        This 18mm equiv. lens gives a wider view than my 28mm equiv. lens, and is helpful in getting in one shot that otherwise would take several stitched together.
                                        Stopping down to f/8 is still necessary to get extreme depth of field from foreground to background.

                                          This wa zoom lens equivalent to a 18-36 35mm lens is really sharp, while remaining lightweight . Price to pay is the aperture (4-5.6) but this allows the zoom to remain so lightweight and suited to travel photography. Use it with a camera that features IS (E-520, E-620, E-3 or E-5)
