    Does anyone have an experiences with it I should know? With the lens extending so much at 9mm?

    Im asking about user experiences.

    You edited your original post to be more specific. Next time ask for what you want the first time.

    Now with that said I saw a review and will try to find it again and post it. How's that?

    I dont have any experience with it but I think there should be a balance ring set for it.
    When you get it working please post pictures.
    Thanks

    I got balance rings. Just at 9mm it seemed very susceptible to started vibrated in mid-air. At 9mm the lens extends the most. Seems like you have to fly more carefully at 9mm. Maybe use tripod mode at the higher speeds at most. I'll test more tommorow.

    Here's a shot at 10mm , just under 400ft: DJI_0314.jpg

    Are you able to change the zoom in flight or do you have to set it on the ground?

    here's a 9mm shot. Seems to work better with no balance ring on the front. Since it's extended fully(Lens)

    One shot at 9mm other a 18mm

    Thanks for the example shots, I was thinking about this lens , but was holding off because of the manual zoom. The range from 9 to 18 is awesome!

    It is awesome. I have the 12,25 and 45 also. I got the 9 - 18mm used for about 350 ebay. Good tool to have. Never know what job can come up or the specifics.

    great shot. Just checking - is this the Four Thirds lens that needs an adapter to fit the X5s?
