The M.ZUIKO DIGITAL ED 9-18mm 1:4.0-5.6 (35mm equivalent focal length: 18-32mm) expands the new lens system. The ultra compactness is undeniable with its a weight of only 155g and a total length of 49mm, possible through the retractable parking mechanism.
Compared with our existing ultra wide-angle zoom “ZUIKO DIGITAL ED 9-18mm F4.0-5.6” the volume has been reduced by 50% and the weight even by 40%. But not only the amazing compactness satisfies, but also the excellent image quality.
You can easily create powerful effects of perspective or use it at the wide-end for excellent close-up shooting with a minimum distance of 15cm from the lens front.
The perfect wide-angle zoom for travellers
This lens's smallness and compactness make it the best take-along, wide-angle lens you can imagine – just perfect for your journeys when heavy equipment can be cumbersome. And despite its size, this OLYMPUS lens will impress you with its amazing image quality.
Convenient inner focus
The M.ZUIKO DIGITAL ED 9–18mm 1:4.0–5.6 lens comprises an inner focus so that the front lens does not turn – which is essential when using filters, such as polarising filters. That's because they have to be fixed in the correct position to function properly and shield reflections as desired.
High-speed AF with low noise
The MSC (Movie & Still Compatible) mechanism gives you quick, smooth AF that is silent and accurate thanks to its high-precision engineering. The focusing lens is moved using a metallic shaft and feed screw to reduce focusing noise to a minimum.
