Your favorite of Ultra Wide Lens for M43

Ultra Wide Lens for Olympus or Panasonic Lumix could bring very difference perspective.

It is a good partner in nature, landscape, city, or street photography.

There is two big group of UWL = normal and fish eye lens. So please feel free to share your opinions.

Some of the list are :

1. Panasonic Lumix 7-14 f/4.0

2. Olympus Pro 7-14 f/2.8

3. Panasonic Leica 8-18 / F2.8

4. Olympus 9-18 f/4.0-.5.6

5. Laowa 7.5mm f/2.0

6. Fish eye Laowa 4 mm f/2.0

7. Fish eye Meike 3.5 mm f/2.0

8. Fish eye Samyang 7.5mm f/3.5

9. Fish eye Meike 6.5mm f/2.0

10. Add more in the list are welcomed

I was in situation to have Laowa or the native UWL.

Laowa 7.5 mm f/2.0 has good reviews, especially good copy.

Anyway, because it is my first UWL investment, in the end I choose to have the 7-14 f/4 from Panasonic. The reasons are :

1. Good reviews

2. Small enough to be put in my bag (it is almost same sizes with 14-140 ii). Meanwhile Oly pro and Lumix 8-18 is significantly bigger.

3. When travelling light, at least I have a complete focal length from 7 to 140 with just 2 lenses I bring my 42.5 mm as additional lens for certain circumstances that require fast lens

4. The AF.. well it just more convenient with it

I believe Laowa 7.5 will bring good result in early sunrise period due to it f/2.0 and it is sharp !

And yes, it is smaller that Lumix 7-14 f/4.0

Kindly share your opinion of the best buddy of your UWL from your perspective.
