Has anyone compared the sharpness of the 4/3 9-18 and the m4/3 9-18?
Jul 16, 2012

I'm on the verge of buying an EM5 but have been struggling with a decision about lenses. Since I already own the 12-60 (on my e30 99% of the time), I'm thinking about just getting the adaptor instead of the 12-50. I've been leaning towards getting the 9-18 -- the m4/3 version, of course, is much smaller and lighter, but does anyone here have any opinion about how it compares with the regular 9-18? (sharpness, fastness, AF, low light, etc.)

The other lens I've been reading about and might like is the 14-150 because of it's all-in-one lens WA to long. But I already own a range of 4/3 lenses that cover all that (40-150, 70-300, 14-54, and also the 12-60, as I mentioned above.) So I'm kind of getting enthusiastic about having the 9-18 -- just don't know which version to buy.
