    Agree with Mike above when he says 12mm is sufficient, another reason I sold my 9-18

    I beg to differ, but then I like ultra-wides. I have a 9-18 (mFT version) and am very pleased with it overall, though results do benefit significantly from post pocessing with DxO Photolab to remove the softness and fringing at the edges (provided you use the raw files). Having to extend the lens before use can be a nuisance (when as is usual I forget ) but it does make it more compact. I would stick with what you've got for now and see whether the extra coverage of the 9-18 would be helpful; 3mm doesn't sound like much but it makes a surprising difference.

      I you want w i d e, try a fisheye!

      These lenses can give a totally different 'look' but the image can also be 'rectilinearised' with software. the following example was taken using my Meike 6.5mm which also has the advantage of f/2 aperture, which makes it very good for interiors:

      This is the main reason why I stopped using my 9-18mm
