View Full Version : It's arrived!

The 9-18 I mean. It came yesterday afternoon, :D and though I've only taken a dozen test shots (nothing interesting) it already looks promising.
It is really light, and I think it will become my favourite carry-around lens. Sharp to the corners and good contrast. It seems a little slower to focus than my ex-7-14, but not bad for a none-SWD lens, and not forgetting it's not a constant f4.
Do I miss those extra 2mm at the wide end? Well, yes, because I know I've had them, but otherwise its a small price to pay. After all, the reason I went to the E5xx in the first place from my Canon 5D was weight, yet all I had done since was add heavy glass! :rolleyes:
I'll post some images once I get some decent ones, which won't be today as it's cold and wet and miserable.:(

So we are both happy bunnies.:)

Looking forward to seeing some results.
