Pros: Compactness, af speed and above all optical quality

Cons: Ugly

Opinion: Small size for such a wide-angle zoom. Surprising the quality of the images produced. Light in weight and price. It deserves to be in the photo bag of every mft user. Opens quickly with unlocking. Not beautiful for the aesthetic perhaps dated, but definitely improves with the rectangular lampshade in option.

Pros: Focal guessed, sharpness, lightness.

Cons: Construction, obsolete design.

Opinion: I turned around a life because of the cost not quite accessible, but in the end I found an opportunity and I launched in the purchase. At first touch it is plasticous, and does not give the feeling of robustness that give the 14-42 II R or the 14-150 II which are also plastic them but of newer design. The design is in fact the first series of optics that date back to the dawn of the M43 system. From an optical point of view instead is a bomb: always sharp with beautiful colors: a handyman. I especially love the focal: Being an admirer of the 35mm equivalent I love that from wide angle can get to 18mm (36 eq) because it covers all my possible needs. It's not bright and if that's not a problem when you make landscapes at 9mm it's a bit more at 18mm, but you can't have the full barrel and the drunken wife. Only problem: At some point the internal flat has been damaged and I had to send it to service: 200 Euri. It burned me a little, but to date there is no other lens with the same focal and size as this in the Panorama M43 (the 8-18 pana is a bison in comparison). My dream? That they do it in version "II" like the 14-150: therefore always plastic, but with the addition of tropicalization. If they did I would change it the same day.

Pros: Compact, resistance to flare, sharpness

Cons: Ugly, plastic and with the release button really annoying (but it is the price to pay for a 18-35eq in 5cm), the usual lens hood sold separately

Opinion: There is no doubt .. if you look compact this little Zuiko will surprise you, but you already know this just read the technical data to understand how little space they managed to put a 18-35eq, focal lengths that do not allow such small size. The defects in my view are the construction, and I wonder why they have not renewed in aesthetics as they would sell to wagon if only the barrel was PRO style. The sharpness at the edges is not exceptional especially at 9mm but not as disastrous as we read around. Having said that, let's move on to the advantages, light and compact, 52mm small and inexpensive filters, resistance to the scary flare (now I have the pana 8-18 and if the dream) sharpness in the center excellent and very beautiful colors. For those who embrace the idea of ??m4 / 3 to save weight and encumbrance, perhaps combined with some fixed on the upper focal length is definitely an excellent travel companion. Obvious considerations ... at 9mm we are at f4 and it's okay since we will often use it between f4 and f5.6 at 18mm we go to f5.6 and considering the pdc double del m4 / 3 you will almost always have everything in focus, so I suggest you combine a fixed 15/17/20/25 for when you want more brightness or less Pdc.

Pros: Crisp, compact and lightweight

Cons: Lens hood is not supplied, the price is still a bit 'high for its category

Opinion: Mounted on a light body, in my case OM-D-M5, it becomes a faithful companion of walks and cycling. Along with a mini tripod type Manfrotto PIXI, it's all in a tiny strap allowing you to walk in a relaxing, a real pleasure for lovers of landscapes or architectural photos, always with you ready to capture the moment or the particular interesting. As for the technical features I have nothing to add to the previous review. To have something more to wait the new PRO 7-14 f2.8 but, weight, size and cost of course will not be the same as this, as a compromise between quality and portability will remain unbeatable.

Pros: Sharpness, color rendering, no vignetting, AF speed, weight, compactness, portability.

Cons: No hood, slight chromatic aberration.

Opinion: The first thing that strikes those who buy this lens is its compactness and light weight: 155 grams and 5 cm in length for an ultrawide corresponding to a 18-36 on FF. It 'so compact and lightweight that Photozone him as "a masterpiece of engineering." Compared to the Panasonic 7-14, another good lens, it is much smaller and less expensive, but pays 2mm side wide.rnLa second thing that strikes you is its optical quality: a 9mm maximum sharpness is practically already at room temperature and, as there is a slight drop in the extreme edges of the frame, the lens is very sharp (certainly more than the Sigma 10-20 and the Canon 17-40 I had). Excellent color rendering, typically Olympus. A 9mm, the distortion is corrected by software from your machine which is smaller than the focal used: already by 14 mm and is virtually non-existent. rnBuona resistance to flare, although it is better to have hood: with light sources extremely side canin fact present, while the lens holds up better light sources more central. Almost absent vignetting, although under certain conditions it may be noted in areas of high contrast a slight chromatic aberration that you can easily correct in PP. The lens, while stretching in its focal, does not rotate, and thus makes easy the use of filters. The AF is quick and accurate. RNLA construction, polycarbonate, is dignified. In short, a zoom that covers you with good quality the wide side of your system m4 / 3.rnNota sore: the absence of the hood which is purchased separately (there are still similar quality also not original). rnComplessivamente, therefore, a good glass: if you want something more like IQ you must contact Panasonic 7-14 (f4 fixed) or the next 7-14 2.8 Pro Olympus. But you have to push the purse strings.
