In The Garden With The 9-18mm M. Zuiko
Used the 75-300 too, but I walked this garden with the idea I would use the 9-18 throughout the range. When you move the thing off 9mm it turns out it's a pretty versatile, tiny lens.

Excellent shots at all focal lengths.

These images from the m9-18 are really nice, I think you should use it more so throw it in the bag for the trip. know how I like using the FT 9-18 and the mFT lens being as small as it is makes its statement too.

I can't wait to learn what the new camera will be like but I'm pretty well convinced it is going to be something special and I am planning to have it. If it does as the rumors are then ok, if not then I will get an EM-5.

Is that saying you don't really like the results at 9mm? They look good to me but of course you have a lot more time with the images. Some time down the road I'd like to end up with this, the 12 or something wide that isn't out yet. the Panasonic 14 is fine but it hasn't seen much time for me since I picked up the 20.

Hi Sammy.

No, not at all. It's pretty darn good at 9mm and everywhere else. Most of the time when I do use this lens it seems like I'm always zoomed to 9mm and don't take advantage of the entire range. Way back when I used to own the Olympus 7-14mm f4 I used to do the same thing, often trying to shoot everything at 7mm. I just may take up Bob's suggestion. A superwide would definitely be a good option to have among the coastal redwoods and the 9-18 M. Zuiko is an easy, tiny lens to pack.
