I'm looking for a 9-18mm Lens to buy.

Hi there everyone, i was just wondering if anyone out there might be interested in selling a 9-18mm lens to go on my E420 4/3rds mount.
The lens i'm after is:-
Olympus 9-18mm ED f/4-5.6 Zukio Digital.
Or i understand Sigma do a 10-20mm on the 4/3rds mount?? i might try and get if there's no 9-18mm out there!.
I hope someone can help me out on this.
Thanks for looking,
Adam..

The 9-18 is definitely superior to the 10-20 - sharper at all lengths and apertures and the extra 1mm at the wide end makes a difference.

I don't have comparative piccies for the sharpness as I only own the oly, but check out these:

http://www.dpreview.com/lensreviews/..._o20/page3.asp
http://www.dpreview.com/lensreviews/..._n15/page3.asp

Note the sigma test was done on a Nikon - so even worse on a Oly - note their opinion of the relative merits of the sigma vs the oly - one that most folks seem to agree with. The vignetting on the sigma also seems to be noticeable too.

Check out http://fourthirds-user.com/2008/11/z...omparisons.php - this gives you an idea of how 1mm difference in a wide angle lens is significant.

Regards

Andy
