I've been interested in wide angle lately but never really tried shots wider than 12mm (24mm FOV) with the 12-35mm.

The review seems to agree that the Pana 7-14mm F4 is a very good wide angle zoom.

I'm going to the mountains and thinking I want to explore wider lens, just need to ask that if I take only one lens can the 7-14 be a walk around lens for landscape and family shots, can I at least take nice shots of family member with background of the view at long end of the zoom or it's not really practical?

Thanks,

The 7-14mm is essential in my travel kit, but I would never take *just* that lens, always a couple others like the 12-40, 75/1.8, or a few primes like 12/25/45 along with it in a small messenger bag.

When you need a lens like the 7-14, nothing else will do, but it isn't in any way a general purpose do everything lens. Its a specialty ultra wide zoom.
