7-14mm @ f/2.8 :)

As some of you might know, ZD 7-14mm is actually f2.8 at the wide end, but it has been limited by f4 to make for a constant f4 lens.
There's some vignetting at f2.8, but nothing that poses an issue.
Besides, images @2.8 do look nice with a bit of vignetting.

The trick to enable f2.8 is to either press the lens release button (shooting handheld) or to unscrew a lens by a tiny part if shooting from a tripod.

Here are couple of samples, during a full moon:
