Hi Greg,

During the short time I had the Mft 9-18mm lens I had a lot of fun with it. The size of the thing is amazingly tiny. But it sure is a dandy of a performer.

As your photos attest.


So you want to be a better photographer? Open your eyes and take a look at what is all around you.

The difference between the two is 6mm on the wide side. If shooting landscape, I doubt the extra 6mm would be a real plus. However, if you you are in small confined spaces, then obviously the 9-18 would be more useful. The thing is, usually confined spaces mean you are inside buildings (museums? churches? etc.) where light can become a problem and having a (much) faster lens would definitely be beneficial. You can always use the 17mm f1.8 but you'll loose 10mm. It's a tough call.
