There's a photo with all the ZD framelines from 7-300mm; hopefully somebody with a better memory than I can link to it.

The answer is the difference between 9 and 11mm is a big one, so if your main goal is going widest, then the 9-18 is the way to go.

I have the 11-22 and the 7-14, so can't comment on the 9-18, only to note it's not weatherproof. The 11-22 can be used wide open with confidence, and is very well corrected.

Of course, what you really want is the 7-14.

Cheers,

I have all three of those lenses, and yes the 7-14 is the killer on those wide angle shots.  All do quite nicely, however.
