Why would you want an 8mm? I can't imagine

a use for a fisheye for such an excursion. With the 7x14, 14x54 and 50x200 in 35mm
terms you've covered everything from 14mm through 400mm. All are supurb lenses.

It's the main reason I'm so far not interested in m4:3. That system has nothing to compare, unless the new Panny zooms prove up to the measure, but I wouldn't hold my breath about that. It seems they are making optically inferior lenses and correcting them with in camera computing. They can make lenses cheaper that way but I haven't noticed prices coming down.

I have a 7x14 and it's a marvelous lens, but HEAVY. I bought a 9x18 which renders excellent images and is about 1/3 as heavy as the 7x14. When traveling or hiking I take it instead of the monster and it serves me very well. My 7x14 has become sort an urban "exploration" lens nowadays. That should get you down to the limit.
