Landscape & Astro: Oly 7-14 f/2.8 or PL 8-18 f/2.8-4

Between the two, which would you get and why? What are the nuances of each? Mainly thinking about an upcoming trip to Iceland. A potential option would be to rent (gasp - throw away money) the upcoming 10-25 f1.7.

  • At their widest both are 2.8 so similar max aperture for astro (trasmission diff?)
  • 7-14 is slightly wider
  • 7-14 is constant f/2.8
  • 8-18 is longer
  • 8-18 can accept screw on filters
  • Both are weather sealed
  • 8-18 is lighter and smaller (easier to carry)
  • Both have autofocus (can come in handy when not used for astro)
