Re: Wide lens of choice?

I think the Lumix G 14mm f/2.5 is quite under appreciated online. In fact, it is a rather good lens, in my opinion.  Not perfect, but for the price and size, very good.

If you can live with the Fisheye distortion, the Samyang 7.5mm f/3.5 fisheye is probably the best wide angle deal there is. Considering the price, it performs very well.

I agree with those who say that the Lumix G 7-14mm f/4 is more so-so in terms of image quality. It's not bad, but considering the price, one could expect more.

I haven't tried the Olympus 12-50mm lens. It appears like an interesting lens, albeit fairly long in physical size.
