My honeymoon with the Olympus 9-18 is more or less over, it’s just one of my lenses now. Still, at times it is convenient to have the lens mounted, even if the focal length would be available from other, higher quality lenses in my bag.
Today’s image for example has been taken at 12 mm, a focal length that I’ve covered by an expensive and beautiful prime, the Olympus 12/2.0.
Would there have been a difference? Hardly at f8. The prime might have been a smidge sharper and for maximum print sizes it may matter. Here, on the web, the difference is negligible.
