I have the Oly 9-18 and love it. I use filters when I'm shooting landscapes, so the threads are important to me. Additionally, the lens is so small and light that I often throw it in the bag 'just in case.'

I find the lens plenty sharp, but if you want more you can always buy the new Oly Pro lens when it comes out. I may buy the new Oly lens, but I won't sell the 9-18 because it is so convenient to carry when I might need it.

If you're curious about filters for m43, you can see my review of the Lee Seven5 system here: http://chasinglightphotography.com/blog/?p=375

Good luck. I'm sure you'll be happy with either lens.
