I don't own the 7-14, but do the 14-35, and tend to keep the aperture to f6.3 at 14mm and f8 at 35mm.

In your experiences, is there anything to gain by stopping these lense down further, considering the output is meant for printing at 8x12?

regards
Chris

as far as i know all olympus lens is very sharp from the wide open aperture.. i have both lens, base on my experience these lens best perform +1 to +2 stop and i never use more than f4 for my ZD 14-35mm and f5.6 to f8 for ZD 7-14mm FYI ZD 7-14mm is UWA lens so it has very deep DOF so no need to take with smaller than f8 unless you want to get "star of the light petern" or you you want to take long exposure..

thanks
