A Couple with the 7-14mm F2.8

I had a chance to play with the 7-14mm F2.8 on my E-M5 Mk1 courtesy of Olympus and the PEN-F launch.

The balcony at the Design Centre and some members from the forum.



At 14mm



At 7mm. Hard to believe you are only 2 feet from the person in front of you.






At 14mm.


At 7mm.

A great lens. It feels and weighs a lot less than the specifications imply. It produces a lovely rectilinear image. For museums and indoor rooms shots its ideal. I didn't have any vast lansdcapes to try so maybe next time.

Re: A Couple with the 7-14mm F2.8

Yes, the 6mm is amazing how it compresses space, OM. Until recently I owned a Zuiko 16mm fisheye that I used on an OM2n, which
has a similar FOV to your 7mm test shots here. this is a shot I took when we were younger and fitter, many long years ago, I'm afraid!

Edit: Note my own fingers!
I paid $1000 for it 20 years ago and sold it 4 years ago for $200 ... silly me I suppose but had no use for it.

Re: A Couple with the 7-14mm F2.8

A very nice shot Mark. Well handled to disguise any distortion.

The 7-14mm F2.8 is still large/heavy for an MFT lens so even if I found the money I would still struggle to get it into my small camera bag. A nice compact 7mm F2.8 prime (think of the 45mm in terms of build quality, size, weight, and price but at a UWA focal lenght i fthat is possible) might be better.

Re: A Couple with the 7-14mm F2.8

Thanks OM. One feature of the 16mm was that it had a inbuilt RED, YELLOW and a UV filter, really neat. The OM2n was the preferred weapon of Vietnam War togers and so damned easy to use, if only they made a digital version. I think Oly have lost the plot!

I dunno! Maybe they have found the plot with the PEN-F.

Re: A Couple with the 7-14mm F2.8

The Panasonic 7-14 f4 is much more compact than the Oly and very sharp. However, the purple flare can be a real issue at times.
