I am probably sort of a Oly collector but not at any price.
I would not pay more than 800 us for a 18/3.5.
One really silly priced oly is the 8 mm fish eye...

If you want to talk silly Oly pricing the 40/2 is the top of that heap! ; -)

$800 for a nice 18/3.5 would be a good price over here.

The tragedy with the 8/fisheyes is that most of them have a proclivity to have fungus on the rear element, so most of the ones you find are no good, thus driving up the prices of those that are still good. (not to mention they were fairly rare anyway).

but I digress....

The 40/2 has a large fanbase it seems. I would not pay that money even though it is a good lens.

40/2 only commands a premium price because it is relatively rare. I got one for ~$200 for a nice looking copy with everything in the box...took me a couple of years to get it, even though I bid on several into the $450-500 range, iirc.

Looks like it was about $490, a good price indeed! (18/3.5)

Was this it?

Wow, sweet deal Andreas!
We are all envious.
It would be interesting to see some comparison shots between this lens and the Nikon 14-24G.
How is the distortion with this lens? It looks better than the 18ZF.
Look forward to seeing some of your shots with it.

I have just picked it up. 30 minutes ago. It is really a sweet thing. Smooth controls and a front element to drown in :-)

I think I am confused - Isn't that link to a fisheye? Did you get a fisheye?

I have been keeping my eye out for this lens but I didn't think it was a fisheye - Maybe that is why I haven't found one

It is not a fisheye. It was misslabeled in the auction... The seller had bought a larger oly collection. Sold most of it locally but put this for sale. I think he got tricked by the front element...

The 16 is a fish. The 18 is not.

I've bought one recently too. Here are a couple of shots with my 40D.

It doesn't have the ultra wide effect on a crop sensor. I waiting for my 5D MkII (arrives next week) and I'm expecting to make some serious tests then.

Nice ones!

My first test confirms what I have heard of the lens.
Sharp all over at 5.6-8. Vignetting is heavy at f/3.5 (I love vignetting so it is a non issue for me...)
It is pretty much gone at f/8. I have to shoot a white wall to confirm though.
