Amazing Lens that changes how you see.
I kept going back and forth on ordering this lens. The first week using it I was so happy that I did. It's an amazingly fun lens! It can turn an ordinary photo walk into a spectacularly fun way of seeing things with new eyes. I love the fact that the distortion from a wide lens can really be exaggerated or not depending on what your going for. It allows everything to look new!

Great performer, especially for astro and low light work
This lens performs very well optically. As is typical of the PRO line, the build quality is exceptional. The manual focus clutch is especially useful when doing astrophotography or any low light work. The weather sealing is great and I've taken it out in the rain, but this len's inability to take filters and the large bulbous front element means the weather sealing isn't as useful as it is for the other lenses in the PRO range. The lens is not heavy for what it is (fast super-wide zoom) but it is very front heavy, which makes it a bit uncomfortable to carry for long periods.

One outstanding lens!
Is the M.Zuiko ED 7-14mm f2.8 PRO Olympus's best lens? Opinions may differ, but it is surely in the running for that accolade. Even though I own lenses across the line from the fisheye to the 400mm and recently added the 14, 25, and 45mm f.1.2 set, the 7-14mm remains one of (perhaps the) best in the line-up for the EM-1 Mark II.

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!
