Until now, super-wide-angle lenses tended to be big, heavy, and expensive, making it difficult for most camera users to take advantage of them. The ZUIKO DIGITAL ED 9-18mm F4.0-5.6 promises to change all this. With its ultra compact and lightweight design and the outstanding portability, thanks to the DSA (Dual Super Aspherical) lens, available only with the Four Thirds System, this lens will make super-wide-angle photography friendlier and more affordable. Despite its compact size — it's just 49.5mm long and weighs a mere 155 grams — this lens boasts a long focusing range equivalent to 18-36 mm on a 35-mm camera lens.

M.Zuiko everyday lenses offer a solution for every shooting situation, whether you need a convenient low-profile lens or a high-powered zoom.
This lens is a great alternative to previous Ultra wide-angle zoom lens designs that have traditionally been very heavy…and very expensive.
The combination of two Dual Sided Aspherical, lenses, and aspherical, ED and HR glass helps minimize distortion and aberration.
If you’re expecting to be doing a lot of outdoor shooting in bright conditions, the hood will really help prevent strong side or stray light from causing unwanted ghosting aberration.
This lens is a great alternative to previous Ultra wide-angle zoom lens designs that have traditionally been very heavy…and very expensive. The Olympus 9-18 zoom is neither. This makes it a great addition to your camera bag. With 2x magnification, it captures the full panoramic beauty of both natural landscapes and man-made architecture – great for interior shots, as well as close-up portraits of friends and family. It just might become one of your favorite lenses.
The combination of two DSA, or Dual Sided Aspherical, lenses, and aspherical, ED and HR glass helps minimize distortion and aberration and delivers excellent image quality at whatever focal length you choose. This lock button you see on the side of the lens is depressed when you want to collapse it for storage.
There is a bayonet connection lens hood available for this lens – and if you’re expecting to be doing a lot of outdoor shooting in bright conditions, the hood will really help prevent strong side or stray light from causing unwanted ghosting aberration. This lens does have a 52mm filter thread and readily accepts UV, Polarizer, or just plain old protective filters if you need them.
Our stacked 20MP BSI Live MOS Sensor is a leap forward for image quality. It uses a revolutionary new way of arranging imaging elements to let more light in while boosting low light performance. Your photos will have breathtaking resolution with low noise and rich dynamic range of expression from shadows to highlights.
