Awesome tank of a lens

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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Excerpt: From shooting ATT Giants Stadium to an Orthodox Church in low light this lens is amazing. The 7-14mm almost acts like my 2.0 14-35 and 35-100 lens. It sucks up the light to produce a very clear image from edge to edge with spectacular colors.
Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Rugged, Strong Construction
Summary: Love this lens! The clarity is amazing and like one of the other reviewers said, it is tough to go back to my standard lenses after using this one. The lens is heavy and can put quite a strain on the neck. It is great for capturing crazy angles in architecture photography.
Summary: Although I do not use this lens often it is good for situations where an ultra wide angle is desirable. It is probably best for landscape photography; I will also use it for large family gatherings around the table where this lens can truly fit everyone in.
Summary: This is a great lens and will not waste a single pixel of your camera. To put anything less than the best is a waste of the large mega-pixel cameras, this lens will maximize the quality of every exposure. I find it hard to use any of my regular quality lenses after using this lens.
