Which of the panasonic leica 8-18mm and the olympus 7-14mm f/2.8 would you choose?

It depends a lot on what is important to you, smaller and lighter or wider angle. The extra angle of view the 7-14mm gives is noticeable when compared side by side and the wider aperture are what pulled me to the Olympus. For me, the Olympus wins on all points as its unnoticeable extra weight is moot. If I had both, I cannot imagine a scenario where I would ever mount the 8-18 instead of the 7-14.

I wanted wide so why settle for the next widest when I could have the widest.

Do you use it for video too? If so what do you do with the shutterspeeds? Or did you get a 105mm variable nd 🙈
