100% Digital-Specific Lens for Sharpness and Rich Colors...

The 9-18mm lens is part of Olympus' expanding line of 100 percent digital lenses designed specifically for digital photography. Unlike other camera companies, Olympus does not rely on old film lenses, which often result in images with softedges or other imperfections.

Olympus has applied its optical expertise to develop the Zuiko Digital 18-36mm equivalent (ED 9-18mm Four Thirds) f4.0-f5.6, a super-wide-angle zoom lens covering a wide focal length range. This compact ultra-wide-angle zoom lens can be used on any of the Olympus E-System digital single lens reflex (DSLR) camera bodies, and measures only 3 inches long and weighs a mere 9.88 ounces for greater portability.

The lens lightweight design coupled with In-Body Image Stabilization available in the flagship E-3, E-510 and E-520 makes capturing amazing, blur-free images possible even without a tripod.

Olympus now offers two super-wide-angle zoom lenses (9-18mm affordable consumer lens and 7-14mm splash-proof lens for the pro photographer) that feature both a focal distance equivalent to less than 20mm on a 35mm camera and image stabilization.

Pairing this lens or any of the other Zuiko digital lenses with the new E-520, and its in-body image stabilization, provides a combination ideal for lower light shots like a fountain at night. This combination offers image stabilization for a super wide-angle zoom not found in camera systems with in-lens stabilization.
