Why I won't buy the Oly 7-14
8 months ago

I like shooting landscapes. I really like shooting landscapes. However, I've never bought an ultrawide lens (apart from a fisheye) for my m43 system because:

1) The Oly 9-18 doesn't go wide enough for my tastes.

2) The Panny 7-14 doesn't take filters.

I've been waiting for more than two years now for Oly to announce it's pro ultrawide and ... the damn thing don't take filters!

Grrrr ....

Looks like I'm going to end up with a 9-18 after all. I'm just going to have to make do.
