Re: User reviews on Olympus 9-18mm lens for the m4/3 camera

It's a nice lens to use - the build is good, light but robust and I personally find the telescopic construction convincing. It's very much in keeping the M4/3 size factor which attracted me to the format in the first place.

Here are two shots taken with a G1. I've also used it with the GF1 but with this lens more than any other I really appreciate the flip-out screen. It handles excellently and operates well on both (very fast focusing). I would recommend it but draw your attention to the chromatic aberration, which is quite strong on the pedelstal. This can be corrected in PP - to a certain extent. Hopefully the lens hood will be out soon.
