Jim, no, the above refers to the Olympus OM Zuiko 18mm f/3.5. A very, very good lens for its time, considering it's a 30-year old design.

The above only mentions the Zuiko 18mm, which I assume is the Standard Grade 9-18mm - a consumer grade lens! So yeah, I should hope the Nikon 14-24 is better than 9-18 Zuiko - but what about the Zuiko 7-14?
