Had decided on the Olympus 9-18, but...

Some days ago I aksed this groupd about a small and wide lens for my EM1.3 (and E-P7). Initially I was set for the 9-18 and that thread didn't convince me otherwise (https://www.dpreview.com/forums/post/66136006). I would love to get the 8-25, but its too expesnive for my occasional wide adventures. However, the new Lumix 9mm/f2 seems quite interesting, being small, fast and wr and with an FL I really like...

So the dilemma now is a used copy of Olympus 9-18 (~300Euro) vs a new PL 9mm/f1.7 (~500E). Quality wise I don't expect them to be very different.

I am still leaning more to the 9-18 as I will be able to access it now (vs the PL9 which will need a couple of months), but the dilemma got a bit more interesting.

Any comments or suggestions?
