Product description
Announced Feb 3, 2010

The M.Zuiko Digital 9-10mm 1:4.0-5.6 is Olympus’s ultra-wide angle zoom for Micro Four Thirds. Thanks to its clever retracting design, it’s comfortably the smallest lens of its type on the market, making it a great option for travel. Optically it’s a solid performer, and autofocus is impressively fast and near-silent. Note that the lens hood is an optional extra (and shared with the M. Zuiko Digital ED 12-50mm F3.5-6.3 EZ). The Panasonic Lumix G Vario 7-14mm F4 ASPH offers a wider angle of view, but at a much higher price.
