Re: Maybe because of the 7-14, or even better a m43 7-14 f2.8 to come :)

See my post above. That still doesn't help the majority of event shooters like yourself.

It's that three lens range thing ... 7-14, 14-35, 35-100
and the low distort at 14mm ... on the 14-35

I used to think the same. And for a certain type of shooter, I can indeed see the attraction, however for you and I, I think they made a mistake (or they simply didn't design it for 'that' sort of pro), and I think Nikon got it right with the 14-24, 24-70 and 70-200, even if there indeed is significantly more distortion at the 24mm end of the mid range lens.

I would rather have a SHG m43 7-14 sitting on a smaller body as my wide.

Hmmmm.... I certainly would rather a slower, but smaller and cheaper 7-14. But for serious work, I'd want it 4/3 and NOT m4/3

  • OK, that is what I am dreaming of.

I have noticed you dream a lot

Top Tip** a year is a long time in professional photography these days. Don't waste your time waiting for something that MIGHT come along!!! Especially if there is something out there that can help you NOW.
