Truth be told, I don't use it as much as I should

When I first bought the 7-14, I used it very often.

My standard lens was the 14-54 back then, and I often wanted wider than 14mm.

But use of the 7-14 has dimished for two reasons:

* the extra 2mm wideness on the 12-60 has been sufficient in many scenarios

* and when I wanted wider, I often had the 8 FE in my bag (much wider FOV than 7-14, and I love its effect.

But it remains an outstanding lens, and if you don't have many other solutions wider than 14mm, and you get a good deal, you should go for it.  UWA is very useful in many situations, also in the kind of portrait shoots that you do (maybe not at 7mm but at 10mm)
