  • 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.

      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.

        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.

        Keep smiling, it gets folk wondering what you've been up to

          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.
