Web Pricing - Why are the prices on this web site different from those in your stores?
Our stores are staffed with a wide variety of product specialists and support staff, each of whom make an effort to be responsive and pleasant to deal with. We're also able to provide a customer with any item from our inventory to inspect and test. The cost of this customer service is an increased overhead for our in-store prices, to pay for the store space, the training of our employees, and other considerations not present online. We're happy to offer reduced prices online and hope that you will be satisfied with your purchase no matter where you decide to buy.
The super wide-angle Olympus M.Zuiko Digital ED 9-18mm f/4.0-5.6 Lens (35mm equivalent 18-36mm) offers a 100 degree angle of view, and overturns the rule that super wide-angle zooms have to be big and heavy. With a length of just 49mm and a weight of just 155g, it less than half the size and 60% of the weight of the ZUIKO DIGITAL ED 9-18mm F4.0-5.6. With its wide angle of view, it makes it easy to include background scenery in group photos, and can be used to create unique images with a sense of dynamically exaggerated perspective.
Excellent Close-Focusing Performance: At the wide-angle end of the zoom range, the lens offers a minimum working distance of just 6" (15cm), making it possible to capture dramatic, wide-angle macro images.
Dual Super Aspherical Objective Element: A Dual Super Aspherical objective element, used at the front of the lens, makes it possible for the lens to offer a 100° angle of view, and dual aspherical elements are used at the back, to correct aberration and ensure superior image quality. Thanks to efficient optical design, the lens delivers an uncompromising combination of compact size and high quality, with clear imaging all the way to the periphery.
Full Multicoating of All Elements: All lens elements are multi-coated to ensure maximum light transmission and image clarity, with minimal ghosting and flaring in backlight.
Circular Aperture Mechanism: A circular aperture mechanism is used to assure smooth, even background defocusing.
High-Speed Autofocus: The inner focusing mechanism uses a light, compact, single-element unit to enable exceptionally fast, quiet autofocusing for smooth, stress-free still-image and movie shooting.
Smooth Manual Focus: The manual focusing mechanism is designed to offer a responsive feel, with just the right amount of resistance to enable smooth, precise operation.
