Re: Olympus 7-14 f2.8

My thoughts on this lens and itís steep learning curve. I recall Thomas Heaton done a vlog on focusing in the field, a short while ago quite interesting utube. This lens does take some getting used to, I come from a nature background with long lenses. I was not impressed with my first few shots. So itís still a suck it and see. As you mentioned filters I found it strange that the 100mm size filters actually vignette at the wide end ie 7-8mm. So opted for the 150mm size. I couldnít see the point of paying a grand for the lens and not using it wide open. However the size of these filters seems to go against the micro four thirds ideology. They are expensive as well.
Kind regards Mike
