Our take on the Olympus 9-18mm f/4.0-5.6 Lens

by Woody Sherman
Olympus

We'll let you in on a (widely leaked) secret: wide-angle photography can be addictive. When you get your first look at a picture you've taken that features truly breathtaking scope, you'll be hooked. Imagine putting everything you'd feel if you'd been blindfolded and then unmasked at the top of Pike's Peak into a photograph or video — that's the potential you'll unlock when you attach this lens. But it's not just landscapes that will present themselves. Fill a frame with an extreme close-up of your pet, cruising for some cuddling. Tour a house and fit almost every room into the frame from the doorway or threshold. Take a picture of your company's city headquarters that features the lobby and the top floor.

Olympus has built this lens with exacting attention to quality, populating it with high-tech optical elements. Plus, it's extremly portable, no larger than a traditional baby food jar.
