Best ultra-wide retilinear lens available for mFT Olympus (with adapter)

M. H. Johnson, Amazon
30 April 2015
  • Summary: Got this lens used some time ago. Did not get much use out of it on the Olympus FT E-5 I bought it for. Now using an OMD E-M1, I had the lens reconditioned by Olympus recently (damage to be repaired was my fault) and have been using it on the E-M1 with the MM3 adapter.

Awesome tank of a lens

Peter N. Leix, Amazon
21 March 2015
  • Summary: Awesome tank of a lens, extremely sharp fast AF, only thing it's lacking is the ability to use filters, which would normally be a deal breaker for me but it did so well capturing wide tonal ranges. It is one of the best built lenses I have ever used.

Top of the Line UWA

Craig, B&H Photo
24 October 2014
  • Excerpt: There is a lot to like about this lens--very sharp, with little distortion. It is ideal interiors. This lens can be difficult to use outside as it is prone to lens flare. Once you get the hang of it, the results are excellent.
  • Pros: Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Strong Construction

Widening your viweing experience with excellent quality at 7 mm (14 mm FF)

mabuse786, Ebay

  • Summary: Excellent and unique lens for the FT system. You may know wide angle lenses at 11 or 12 mm (22-24 mm full-frame equiv.), however the difference going to 7 mm (14 mm FF equiv.) was amazing for me. Suddenly you see things on the picture you didn't see before.

WOW! Fantastic Image Quality

Adorama
18 March 2014
  • Excerpt: This is a large, and heavy lens for this format, but the image quality and unique wide view that it offers is special. This lens balances and handles nicely on the OMD E-M1 body and it is dust and splash sealed.
  • Pros: Fast / accurate auto-focus, Wide Angle View
  • Cons: Protruding front element

Stunning quality, minimal distortion

Footloose, B&H Photo
12 February 2014
  • Excerpt: have owned this lens since 2005, I can safely say, it has been the best purchase I have ever made. Unlike other optics (including primes like the 12mm Heliar) the difference in exposure between the centre and edge of the frame, is only 1.5 f-stops, whereas many others are around 3 f-stops.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Outstanding image quality, Rugged, Strong Construction
  • Cons: Heavy, No Aps-c Version

Terrific Lens, Beware of the Learning Curve

z, Amazon
29 June 2013
  • Summary: As every review has noted, this is without question a first rate lens. I use this lens for landscapes. I cannot speak to its worth for shooting interiors. First and foremost, this lens requires some work to master.

Amazing ultra-wide angle!

Ben, Amazon
19 May 2013
  • Summary: It's crazy to picture how wide 7mm is until you get to see it through your viewfinder. The hood is permanently attached and just barely longer than the glass. The cap is a hefty metal cover that goes over the entire hood. The lens itself is incredible.

solid but still lacking

rufusrm, olympusamerica.com
1 May 2013
  • Summary: though the lens is an excellent performer, that fact that it's f4.0 is it's real limitation. you loose two stops of light compared to it's matched longer lens, the 14-35mm f2.0, and this makes a huge difference when the light is low.

THE Wide Angle Lens for 4/3 Users

I. Davis, Amazon
4 March 2013
  • Summary: I am a major fan of shooting wide angle. My widest lens was the 12-60mm, but I wasn't using it since purchasing the 14-35 (much less distortion at 14mm). Coming into contact with this lens has been absolutely amazing and a new challenge.
