Actually, they were all easy to work with, all are used to working for treats. (No such thing as a free pose...)

This one isn't with the 7-14, though, but just to show you those two lovely dogs (sadly not mine )

Re: m4/3rds vs 4/3rds 7-14mm zooms.

I have read reviews on the Panasonic 7-14mm and I don't find it convincing enough to consider selling my Olympus 7-14 to fund one. I have often used the Olympus on the E-M5 and although the AF is a bit slow, this isn't a fag for the subject matter I use this lens for. With the battery grip fitted I don't find the Olympus 7-14mm OTT at all and the undoubted IQ, possibly unequalled, is worth any additional weight carried.

If you're happy enough with the extra weight, I would concur.

I was happy with my Panny 7-14 (which I sold because it wasn't getting enough use), but if I had to compare it with my Oly 7-14 (using hindsight, as I no longer own that lens either), I would have to say that the Oly, as with most Olympus glass, has that certain "something" that, in the main, Panasonics just don't have. I'm not talking pure sharpness, just a sort of extra clarity. Difficult to explain, but I think that's where Olympus beats Panasonic.
