Pana 7-14 zoom vs. 7 and 14 primes?
Feb 1, 2010

I am planning to get the 7-14mm zoom for "urban landscape" shooting with my G1. Expensive, but you only live once... However, I just saw the announcement of the 8mm f3.5 Fisheye and the 14mm f2.8 pancake. I am quite tempted to wait, and get the 14mm (and maybe also the 8mm) instead... I love my 20mm pancake, and the 14mm looks like another winner... Any thoughts from 7-14 owners? Do you find you are using the lens all over the range or is one extreme more useful than the other? Tradeoffs between one zoom and two brighter primes?
