Wide angle

a wonderful treat, i have seen them in the range of 425 - 500. This might sound expensive but it is substantially cheaper than the Panasonic 7 - 14 mm. Personally I have stuck with the panasonic 14mm as for most instances that is quite wide enough.

There a few second hand ones about. I saw on in the Harrogate Bass and Bligh for 375 and it was in mint condition.

Happy hunting!

Re: Wide angle

I have no experience of the 9-18 but I have the 11-22 and it is excellent. It is not often that I feel the need to go wider than 11mm and the 11-22 also has the advantage of weather sealing to match the E-1. As I say, I've not used the 9-18 but I once did a comparison between the 14-42 kit lens and the 14-54 Mk 1 and the HG glass definitely had a significant edge over the kit lens in resolution.

Ffordes have three secondhand 11-22 lenses listed but no 9-18s (http://www.ffordes.com/category/Lenses/4/3rds_Fitting) ranging from 350 to 400 - the 7-14 Zuiko is an awesome piece of kit but significantly more expensive secondhand at 850 to 1000

Cheers,

JohnGG

Re: Wide angle

I have a 9-18 I am going to sell - just not sure what the going rate is

edit: I thought I bought this lens on here but cannot find the thread if I did and cannot remember how much I paid for it. Anyway it's in great condition and going by the part ex-price I have been offered I would be after £235 ovno + rmsd if that is any use.

I bought it and have had it on the camera once to test (no issues at all). I have partially moved to a D800 which I will be using for any wide angle work now so it has to go.

Re: Wide angle

I've owned both, and although the 11-22 is a beautiful lens, I found I just wasn't using it enough. I swapped to a 9-18 and I use it much more as its wider angle, and it's lighter in weight, and the quality is still pretty fantastic - what do you expect from any Olympus lens!

Up to you in the long run though!

Re: Wide angle

I would look for both well under £300.

I sold my 9-18 for £245. This seems about fair, if you look at sold listings on ebay you'll see most are below £300, minus 10% for ebay. The 11-22 is actually priced around the same, as its not as wide as the 9-18 or as versatile as the 12-60. The last 11-22 auction actually ended at £205, which seems a bit low.

The 11-22, while a wide angle lens, is not really an ultra wide angle like the 9-18 or 7-14. The 2mm difference between 9mm and 11mm is actually huge.

Re: Wide angle

I purchased the 11-22 several years ago and never regretted it. It is the only zoom lens I own and I have no requirement or inclination to replace it with anything else. Sharpness and color are superb, and its not too big to carry around.

Re: Wide angle

I have the 7-14mm, 11-22mm and 8mm Fisheye but the lens I use most is a m4/3 9-18mm on my EP-2 (the lens & body combined weigh less than the 7-14mm).

The 11-22mm is a lovely walk around lens and one of the best zooms Oly has ever made. But if it's wide you are after and on a budget go for the 9-18mm.

The 7-14mm is a beast to use, the curved front element does not take filters and preventing lens flare can be a nightmare.

Re: Wide angle

I agree with Chevvy about the 11-22 it's a lovely lens and f2.8 too, which is good for indoor shots. It's really good at close ups too surprisingly enough, it just gives a lovely look to it's images.
