    7-14 F2.8 Reviews?

    Has anyone got hold of the new Zuiko 7-14 F2.8 and give any comparisons to the Panny 7-14 F4 lens?

    While I still can't make the move to micro 4/3, I can vouch for the 7-14mm f4 for 4/3. It is truly stunning. It quickly became a favourite lens of mine, and the only reason I don't walk around with it more is out of fear of damaging it.
    E-5: ZD 50mm, Sigma 105mm macro, ZD 150mm; ZD 7-14, 12-60SWD, 50-200SWD, Sigma 50-500mm, EC-14.

    I'd like to see some comparisons with the old ZD 7-14 f4. I do a fair bit of architectural photography with this lens, a smaller, faster and more accurately focussing lens would be great.

    Thumbs up Re: 7-14 F2.8 Reviews?

    I got to "play" with one, and was very impressed. I've sold my Olympus 7-14 f/4 so couldn't do any side by side tests, but handling is much improved, with a very smooth zoom and snap focus making it highly desirable.

    Robin Wong's review was very positive.

    Yes thats the big problem with that lens, the front seems so vunerable. I got the Samyang 7.5 which doesnt seem quite as vunerable and much more reasonably priced.
