The never heard of camerawhatsit. You are reading the Photozone review differently to me. I read it as not as good as the 7-14, but that's too expensive for most people, and the Oly is good for the money.
Which is what most reviews seem to say.
The 9-18 is excellent value. If value is not a primary concern, it all looks less attractive.
Or that's what I think I keep reading. Since we are now talking reviews rather than hands on, you know as much as me!

If they thought it was a poor lens they wouldn't think it was such good value!

I'm not a big fan of photozone to be honest, but I can't find much else. Are there any pro photographers that take the time to write reviews? Lab tests start to tell the story but they are very unsatisfactory without real world use. I care about pictures, I don't care much for MTF figures being slightly this way or that. If I don't see it in the pictures it isn't relevant.
