Re: OMG! We have the ZD 9-18mm f4-f5.6...

First off, I would like to thank Brian again for his time and effort to provide us with information and exciting news.

What I don't understand is why some people go into a hype and start waxing lyrical. The evidence we have seen so far:

(a) two images at 3648x2736 showing some quality issues (CA and blur) albeit the consensus seems to be that it is acceptable or even good at this price point

(b) a series of 18 images at 540x720, showing good colour and acceptable distortion

(c) 5 images on a Japanese web site at 1024x768, taken through a glass window - not really useful for judging the lens quality

Have I missed something?

Based on the evidence above I'd say the lens fulfills the necessary condition, but whether it is a ripper only further evidence can tell.
