Finally Wide Enough
I've been waiting for a m43 superwide with an AoV similar to what I carried in the 35mm film days. Well, the Olympus 7-14mm f2.8 Pro not only meets my self-imposed requirement, it handily exceeds it. My original thinking was that I didn't need the zoom capability because I could adjust my position to frame my subject. As it turns out, the zoom lets me compose more effectively in tight spaces - in a corner, crouching down or shooting with the lens stuck between fence pickets. The 7-14 Pro is built like a tank. I expect it will perform well in fair or foul weather just like the rest of the Pro line. Optical performance is excellent - almost no flare under any of the conditions I've been shooting in, good contrast and color saturation. There is a 'pump' in the AoV at 7mm that's a little disconcerting when the lens autofocuses from near to far or vice versa, but it's part of the mechanics of superwide rectilinear lenses. Autofocus speed is very fast with no appreciable hunting until you get into very dim, flat lighting. The sharpness at full aperture is excellent across the whole frame. Superwides are usually used to show perspective and shape, so the very slightly less-than-perfect f2.8 corner sharpness isn't an issue. It's still sharper than anything else you're likely to use for the same work. Barrel and pincushion distortion is very small, especially for a zoom of this focal length and range. I use this lens on an E-M1 and have no issues with the balance; large, fast lenses are meant to be cradled to stabilize your shooting platform, not left hanging off the camera body while you struggle to hold the camera steady. I can't find any structural or performance issues with this lens and am pleased to have it in my arsenal. Olympus has done a great job again!
