Re: Brian, last 2 questions on the 9-18, I promise :)

Hi Am,

Basing myself on the straight lines of the Japanese bow window, as
well as on the street tiles in your pictures, lack of distortion seem
quite good.

Did you find so?

It's certainly looking good... nowhere near as bad as the 12-60 barrel distortion!

My last 2 questions, which I assume are quite common among us, and
yet without an answer:

Is the 9-18 as compatible with µ4/3 as the kit lenses - does it focus
well with Contrast Detect?

Yes, as with the kit lenses it is compatible - but this beta version is slow... no good for moving subjects.

When is the lens is going to ship for real , at least in the UK and
Europe?

I suspect October in limited quantities...

Kind Regards

Brian
