Here are a couple of threads:

http://www.dpreview.com/forums/post/41870468 Four or five years ago, I was agonizing over the same decision.  I ended up with the 9-18.  The 11-22 may be a "better" lens, but the 9-18 is also very good, and 9mm opens up a whole new world if you've never done UWA before.  Julie

Hi,

I would like to add a wide angle lens to my collection and am not sure if I should go with the 9-18mm f4.0-5.6 or 11-22mm f2.8-3.5.  The 11-22 is faster (and a bit more expensive) but I'm more concerned about the different focal ranges.  How much wide angle is lost between 9 and 11?  If anyone knows of a site which compares the two with pictures, I would appreciate a link.

Thanks!
