Pros: Sharpness, micro contrast , "clarity", leica colours , build quality .

Cons: haven't found any yet ,except af problems in low light on my Olympus bodies

Opinion: Found a used one in mint condition , my local retailer let me try it for a day before decision , I was sold and bought it the next day no questions asked . I was looking for a replacement for my old 4/3 mount Oly 9-18 , which is a good lens in its own right but that I found a bit "weak" . In comparison the Leica has more micro contrast , more clarity , is sharper, and wider by 1 mm , which can make a difference sometimes in real estate shots . On the other hand the old 4/3 lens has less distortion , you can see it in raws, but then the jpeg engine takes care of this . Only flaw so far : the Leica does not like to AF in dim light on pictures of wide open spaces ( urbanscapes and landscapes ) , but nothing dramatic . I read it's better on panasonic bodies . Forgot to mention the build quality , just excellent , like the 12-60. Highly recommended .

Pros: Construction,yield to all focal points,tropicalization,accepts screw filters (67mm)

Cons: Price, f 2.8 only to 8 mm (16 mm) is as if it were a fixed f 4, it is addictive

Opinion: After a year of use I have trouble removing it from my G9. For the mciro 4/3 system is a must have. Excellent yield at all focal points, impressive flare and ghost seal. Excellent tropicalization I found myself around with the rain never had any problems. The predisposition to 67mm screw filters takes away Holder's undersle and slabs to carry with you. High price but quality pays for it. It is considered a constant f 4, f 2.8 only to 8 mm (16 mm).

Pros: Clutter and weight, flare resistance, sharpness to all focal points, accepts filters, tropicalization

Cons: cost, UNCERTAIN AF on olympus bodies, bulky lampshade

Opinion: If you are looking for a classic wide angle 16 35 the choice is almost obligatory. Consider a constant F4 with the plus of 2.8 to 16mm very useful for the stars. Light and accepts 67mm filters, very good flare resistance. Excellent sharpness to all focal points, as well as the pro zooms of other brands (nikon, canon, sony). To report some problems on olympus bodies, often inaccurate AF and problems with the machine body stabilizer. On Panasonic bodies instead everything is perfect. For me a must have of the system.

Pros: Pro

Cons: Price,soft at open diaphragms corners

Opinion: After buying and trying the Zuiko 7/14 2.8 I wanted and had to consider this optics. Let's say the first difference between Pana and Zuiko is mm. Then the optics are equal in terms of sharpness, although the Zuiko would seem sharper than the average values. But what made me understand which of the two to choose are the flare.il panaleic is almost free of reflection of any kind, the Zuiko was just a little light or side light and Ghost and flare were never missing. As quality the Zuiko would seem to have done better has a distance scale , it has a button to be able to assign any command species with an Olympus M1 mk2, it is in fact a 14/28, and has a constant diaphragm of 2.8.The panaleica does not have all these things but goes straight to the bottom, images with the Leica timbre, sharp , does not suffer or suffer from flare ne of Ghost is a 16/36 and you can mount the filters. I must tell the truth I found a hair of difference how sharpness the Zuiko is ahead, but closing in a little mid diaphragm are identical. Summarizing ,everything written so far by other reviews are consistent with this optics. What to say cost and not little I preferred to put something back because the Zuiko I had bought new and the Pana used but great, but what convinced me at the change useless repeat it are the reflections that on the Pana are almost non-existent. I'll finish by giving a nice 10 to that optics and as soon as I get to try it more I'll update you. Yes after taking a few photos I have to say that it is a good lens but does not convince me at all,creates several halos in particular circumstances and the sharpness at the edges I do not like,the Zuiko was better. Maybe I don't have a feeling with zoom optics I'm thinking of a fixed staying in the Leica house,we'll see.vote 6.

Pros: Solid construction and tropicalization, made superb.

Cons: The price even if justified by the quality. I would have liked it less voluminous... but it's wanting to look for the hair in the egg.

Opinion: I don't use these focal points much also because my (few) wide-angle zoom experiences had never been satisfactory. I wanted to try this lens and I was amazed: the yield is exceptional to all the focal points and openings. What I appreciated the most besides the excellent sharpness that even in the edges is not bad for a wide-angle is the rendering of colors and microcontrast. I feel compelled to advise you with my eyes closed.
