I'd be all over that lens if it was 3 stops faster and without a
moving aperture! Shame it isn't.

Hi Jonathan,

I don't know how much uwa shooting that you do, I've had mine since May. And as I would say, still learning about it.

I find that the 7mm runs out of comfortable DOF at f/8. It's not that the sharpness is poor - the lens is a really sharp lens. But lower than f/8, I haven't shot scenes that I enjoy.

Next thing is the curvature of the front element and the size of the lens. The 9-18 is a much smaller lens. The 7-14 front element is really obvious and it still is only f/4 to go any bigger, the lens and the cost and the weight will be big. The 9-18 is a lot cheaper I think than my 7-14mm - you can't get low price, large aperture, filter in the front, small dimensions as far as I can see.

Look at the competition:
They are all about f/4
