Yes. Excellent lens - with an adapter, of course.




Yes, there are two different Olympus 9-18 lenses.

- The M.Zuiko ED 9-18f/4-5.6 for m43, and the

- Zuiko Digital 9-18/4-5.6 for FT (Four Thirds, the predecessor mount of m43). This is not collapsible, has a slightly better IQ, is larger, needs an adapter to work with m43, and AF will be very noisy and extremely slow on any m43 body without pdaf. But it can be found both used or new, for far cheaper than the m43 version.

Left the FT 9-18 with adapter, center the m43 9-18 collapsed, and right the Panasonic 7-14/f4 for size comparison

Isn't it great to have choices

Except that the OP specifically asked about the Mzuiko lens, which is why your mention of an adaptor was questioned.
