  • It's arrived! (m4/3 9-18)

    Thanks to a windfall from those nice people at Inland Revenue, I decided to invest in a micro four-thirds version of the 9-18 lens. I had been happily using the ZD version with adaptor, but decided in the spirit of downsizing to get the "proper" version for my E-P2.

    Well, it arrived this morning, less than 24 hours after ordering it from a UK based Ebay seller (Chris Goodhead Photographic). It comes with European warranty documents, and was considerably cheaper than other outlets.

    I've not had chance to use it yet (raining, as usual!) but it certainly seems better made than the standard 14-42 zoom. The zoom mechanism is much stiffer and the focus ring also feels firmer. The black finish goes well with the camera. It doesn't come with either a bag or a hood.

    I'll post results once I've a chance (if anyone's interested) and I'll do some comparison shots with the ZD version.
