Holy Crop!

Been thinking on which UWA lens to get...

I was set on the Tokina 11-16/2.8 for the A-mount

(available @ Amazon for USD659) but if I get it, I can't use it for my FullHD videos :P
of course that's unless I get the Sony NEX
but I digress...
That constant f2.8 is really really tempting!

So I'm back with the Pana 7-14 vs Oly 9-18 debate.
The Panasonic 7-14/4
(available at Amazon for USD978)
is what I like but it's not very practical, damn expensive :P
I may need that extra 2mm on the wide side but still the price is outrageous for me.
Plus the 14mm on the other end could be short at times.

Crop sensors make you loose the angle of view when compared to 35mm.
7-14mm on a 2x crop sensor like M4/3 and 4/3rds will look like 14-28mm.
The 9-18mm will look like 18-36mm and I think that would be more useful for me.

So I might just go for the
Olympus M.Zuiko 9-18/4-5.6
(available at Amazon for USD600) I just hope it doesn't die on my like what happened with my Oly M.zuiko 14-150 :P
