14-35mm f/2.0 full-size sample with spectacular detail
Feb 15, 2013

Thumbnail of full-size image. 25mm, f/4.0, Olympus E-5.

Having recently finally found a 14-35 to round out my 7-14 and 35-100 (SHG) lens range, I have to say that the 14-35 is so good it's ridiculous. I wanted to share the above image (which has just about no artistic merit) to share this - it's a simple RAW conversion (using RawTherapee on Arch Linux).

Does any of the full-frame trolls on this forum care to post a sample from your favourite 24-70 / 28-70 at f/4.0 that competes?

At f/2.0, performance almost does not drop at all compared to f/4.0, it's simply a perfect lens - a true vindication to Olympus' vision for this system compared to non-telecentric lenses. I also appreciate the handling and instantaneous, silent focusing of this lens over and above the 7-14 and 35-100, it's lovely to use and behold. A perfect balance on the E-5 body.
