This is a great wide zoom, with a 35mm equivalent of approximately 14-28mm. This is a tad wider than my 16-35mm 2.8 L series Canon lens. Although has less at the "long" end, when I go to this lens I am always looking at the wider end anyway; if I want a standard wide angle view, I will bolt on the M. Zuiko 12-40mm 2.8 Pro (approx 24-80mm 35mm equivalent) which covers the standard wide angle range pretty well. In fact, I can remember at one time 24mm was considered a pretty extreme wide angle. This lens is pretty large and heavy by Micro Four Thirds standards; in fact, it is very close in size and weight to my afore-mentioned full frame 16-35mm 2.8L Canon lens. However, it is definitely worth the size and weight penalty. The build quality is superb, and I have been extremely happy with the optical performance. I do like the manual focus clutch that allows me to switch from AF to manual focus with the feel of a real manual focus lens. At 2.8 it is pretty fast for a wide angle zoom. This is the most expensive piece of glass I have gotten for my Micro Four Thirds system, but the quality justifies the cost. If you need a super wide zoom, this is your lens.

Fast and sharp.
This lens has performed flawlessly for me. Whether using it for Macro work, old church interiors or landscapes its optics and speed have rewarded me with great images. It achieves near fisheye effects when at the widest end of its range which may take some time to anticipate but can usually be corrected, if not desired, in post processing. Low light performance is stellar. The only negative is the lack of accommodation for filters, but there are aftermarket adapters that will work. Wonderful lens!

Great wide angle lens
This lens is a terrific lens, although quite expensive, but worth the money for the image quality.
