Reviews and Problems with Olympus ZUIKO DIGITAL ED 7-14mm F4.0
Showing 1-4 of 4
solid but still lacking

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. Why have a physically large lens, slightly smaller than a comparable fx sensor lens, that's a full stop slower? makes no sense. oly can't compete on high iso and even marketed that 4/3rds lenses are either smaller or faster.
Summary: Great great lens. I shoot interiors and landscapes with this and am having fun with such a wide angle. It is a big heavy lens for and f4 but there is zero distortion. I debated between this and the 9-18mm, but I got a good deal on this lens as a demo and am glad I chose this over the 9-18mm. Some may say 4/3rds is dead, but I don't think so. It's not as popular as Nikon or Canon but they make awesome glass and this is one of them.
