    This lens will be my third one.... the only one I chose. I have a 17.5 - 45 that came with the camera, and a 40-150 that was bought for me last summer. We go to visit New York soon, and I'm keeping my eye out for a 14-54 or at least a good quality lens that will replace my short lens. Who knows, I might pick up a bargain at the duty free shop

    My next purchase will be the 9-18mm. Good luck with it and do show us some shots yeah.
    I'm hoping I dont let the lens down too much
    But there will be plenty of opportunity for me to use it, and practice makes you better doesnt it

    Tracey, the 11-22mm lens is very good and is the only zoom I own, not being a long lens user and having sold my kit lenses. My daughter gets married in two weeks time and it will be the 11-22 lens I'll be using for my personal shots. I used to be a wedding photographer some years back and used medium format back then, but I'm more than happy to use the 11-22 as I know the shots will be upto scratch.
    That said, there is a possibility that mine will be up for sale afterwards as I tend to shoot more with my rangefinder cameras and I'm considering going over to them completely.

    Re: Second Hand Lenses

    Thanks for the samples Archphoto. Seems like that 2mm can make a big difference. Now this doesnt make my choice any easier to make... Looks like I'm going to have to think about this some more.

    Jonesy here are 3 shots, all taken with my 7-14mm that show you the diference between the 7-14mm, the 9-18mm and the 11-22mm.
    The building to the left is the reference point and the right side shows you how far the angle will go.

    The 9-18mm will give you these results, the 11-22mm (that I have) too.



    at 7mm




    at 9mm




    at 11mm

    I hope this helps a bit.

    Hi Chrimbo

    We have 2 "local" camera stores, but both lenses are special order through them, which is why I'd love to see some comparision shots from the people here (That and everyone here is a much better photographer than I am )

    Wide
    the 11-22 has a 90 degree field of view at the 11mm end.
    it appears very well corrected so that if you keep it level you do not have to do any perspective changes in PP

    One thought: do you have an Oly dealer you can get to? If so go and try them out
