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.
