I'm still convinced the 7-14mm f/2.8 pro is a better deal than this 8-25mm f/4. Most people already have a lens that covers the 20-25mm range with a wider aperture [2]. So on the wide end the 7-14mm is wider, brighter and probably cheaper as well [3].

1/ You might as well buy this new lens for its greater reach. Everything's a compromise.

2/ Where did you get the data to support this claim?  I'm suggesting you are exaggerating.

(Just as a irrelevant point I do not own a brighter lens of this range. I own a Panny 7-14mm so that immediately excludes me from the "most people" set.)

3/ So on the long end the 8-25mm is longer and has greater range.  B&H has the Oly 7-14mm listed for $1299. "Probably" based on what?
