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.


It seems your results/judgments with regard to the 7-14 are a bit out of line with those of most other reviews, e.g., the one here at DPR. How would you account for the difference?

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