Olympus 11-22mm f/2.8-3.5 Zuiko Digital review by 108
22 October 2014
Summary: I bought this lens for a bargain one month ago . It's my 3rd high quality 4/3 lens after the 14-54 and the Panaleica 25 f1.4 and I must say I am very very pleased with the results . I wanted to use it for achitecture and real estate shots and this lens delivers .
Pros: sharpness, IQ, contrast, colour rendition, ease of use

Summary: This is the only lens model I've purchased twice and despite its shortcomings remains my favourite wide-angled zoom. I have only ever used it on micro four thirds cameras and my original copy was wholly and necessarily manually focused on a Panasonic Lumix G1.
Pros: Great build, smooth handling, dust free, lack of distortion, centre sharpness, excellent contrast
Cons: Mediocre against glare, disappointing edge sharpness at widest settings
Summary: I will simply echo Craig's review. I've owned 4 Olympic bodies since '09. Along with that I've also owned the 14-54 mm first generation and extensively played with the most beautiful 12-60 mm legend!! Oh and I was married to the 50mm.
Summary: Yeah, the 43 system is defunct but the 11-22mm was and remains one of the stars of the system. This lens covers a small range but it does so with very little distortion. It is faster than the 7-14 and much less prone to lens flare. It is reasonably sized and takes a standard 72mm filter.
Summary: I have had this lens for over three years now, and Love It !! I have been using it on an E-500, and it gives truely great images. Now I have started using it on an EM-5, and the results with it are even better.

Summary: I'd first like to address the cons I've listed above. The chromatic aberration and distortion are to be expected given the zoom range. In that regard, I suppose these cons are applicable to all but the most advanced wide zooms. In truth, I have no problem eliminating them in post-processing.
Summary: The 11 - 22mm F/2.8-3.5 it can either give off a great wide angle shot for that wave crashing on the beach or that up close shot of a beautiful flower in the summer, this lens does have a tiny bit of distortion, not so much of the sides when in the widest focal mm but more in the stretching of the...

Summary: since the introduction of the 12-60 this lens seemed to have no place in the overall lens lineup of the 4/3rds system. with the 12-60 being a standard zoom that is nearly as wide and the 9-18 even wider though not as fast and the 7-14 for the ultra-wide money is no object segment of the market the...
Pros: image quality, lack of distortion,
Cons: limited zoom range, zoom range overlap with standard zooms

Summary: This is the most distortion free optic I've ever used. In fact, I chose it over Olympus' excellent 12-60 for this reason. The psychological effect of seeing truly straight lines in a photo where they were straight in life is never forgotten once you've used a lens like the 11-22.
Pros: Superb sharpness, CA, distortion; fast, wide; dust and splash-proof; vast DOF with Four-Thirds
Cons: expensive 72mm filters; exposed front element

Summary: i have two E-1 bodys and the 11/22 stays for ever in one of them. all around lens with f2.8 at 11mm! almost allways at that range where you must pay attention to distortion. most of the times i have to use cs3 to correct lines wich makes me lose some area, but for interior is very usefull.
Pros: wide angle, fast, very fast focussing, weather proof
