{ $sel = "1"; ?>Olympus 9-18mm if ($sel != '1')
{ ?>Olympus 9-18mm review. They confirm that CA (Chromatic Aberration) is high but sharpness is excellent.

In the meanwhile one owner noticed a “extreme softness on the right side” (dpreview forum). Hope this is a problem with that specific sample and not a general issue.

If you need to know why the NEX-5 can’t overshadow MicroFourThirds cameras read the preview on Luminous Landscape.
