Quality


I did about 100 shots with this lens yesterday and i am very pleased with the results.

Positive Review

Good enough for me means that you'll get images that you'll be very pleased with.

Positive Review

Not just the quality of image but simply you can produce photos that were not possible.

Negative Review

Image quality: good enough for the purposes of this lens, for this type of camera system etc.

Negative Review

Image quality is not a big concern for me, but even on my gh1 (which doesn't have the benefit of lens-specific in-body correcti...  Read More

Neutral Review

And that the exterior is made from plastic has nothing to do with the quality of the glass inside the lens.

Neutral Review

Price


Overall, i was really happy with the lens and think the price is competitive for such a quality and unique lens.

Positive Review

Equating the weight and price to my automobile, my car would have cost $6.

Neutral Review

Recently, amazon had an instant rebate that brought the price down to 60% of the price of the panasonic lens.

Neutral Review

Packaging/appearance


Things around the edge of the frame don't look as unnaturally flat and odd on the oly as they do on the pana.

Neutral Review

Competitiveness


6 is nothing special for a uwa zoom, and the 9mm (18mm in 35mm terms) wide end isn't quite as wide as much of the competition.

Positive Review

This has become my favorite lens for my olympus e-m5 mk ii camera.

Positive Review

When buying an ultra-wide angle mft zoom lens, it's natural to look at both the olympus 9-18mm and the panasonic 7-14mm lenses.

Neutral Review

It's only one of two ultra-wide zooms for micro four thirds, and it is quite a bit less than the lumix 7-14mm.

    Size wise its pretty small when you have it in the carrying position and build quality is loads better than the oly kit lens.

    If you do shoot pics with people in them and you are at the 9mm end make sure that they are not towards the edges of the frame as there is some distortion of the image there.

    Whilst this can be corrected for faces etc its not ideal so just be aware its a limitation of this sort of lens.

    Again, if you are moving from a p&s camera this is the sort of lens that offers you something different to what you could do before.

    There is some distortion but this is almost expected on lenses this wide.


    Posted by a reviewer on Amazon

    Although fantastic optically, the panasonic is just too large and heavy especially with the protruding front element.

    Also, pigs will fly before olympus includes hoods and pouches with their lenses.
