". . . Get the olympus 9-18 for $500 . . ."

Good luck with that.  Regular price for the 9-18mm now seems to be $699, and when the gods of retail are smiling you can snap one up for $100 less.  The 4/3s 9-18mm can be had for $419-$500, but by the time you buy an adapter for M43, you might as well pay the big bucks in the first place.

Somehow, some way, competition among lens makers doesn't result in more-affordable first-rate ultrawide and wide angle zooms for M43 cameras.  That's something independent lens makers might want to do something about. Maybe instead of cranking out ever more me-too zooms for Nikon/Canon/Sony. Just a thought, anyway.
