Add the 7-14mm f4 to my "best" lenses list. I'd say it's an easy 2nd after the 20mm f1.7 in terms of really leveraging the power of m43. The 7-14mm is significantly smaller / lighter than comparable ultrawide zooms for any other format, performs extremely well, and gives you a lot of bangs for your bucks.

I've rented the 9-18mm m.zuiko and it really isn't in the same ballpark. It's a significantly less professional lens (lower sharpness, cheaper build, etc.) and that extra 2mm you lose on the wide end is huge.
