I have it. I had the 9-18 mm, 8-25 mm, and 8-18 mm for a weekend to compare side by side. To me the Panasonic seemed sharper at wide angles, above 12mm the Olympus Pro won. The 8-25 went back and I sold the 9-18.

A neat feature of the 8-18 is it's semi-internal zoom, you can leave it set to to any focal length when you put it away. Put a protective filter on it, chuck the lens cap away, and it's instantly ready for use. Way more convenient than faffing about with collapsible lenses.
