I wish dpreview could test this lens with Olympus bodies too. Is there any issues?

Some wide angle lenses seem to have bit of a "purple blob" problem and Lumix 7-14mm on a Oly body is prime example.

Could be great addition to Oly owners too.

Suddenly $7.5K for Olympus M.Zuiko 150-400 f/4.5 with integrated TC and ability use both 1.4x and 2.0x tc's feels cheap and light.

Basically the same reach for fraction of the cost and size. Not that much different in terms of equivalent aperture too.

I have no idea why this is even worth mentioning here.

Note that on few pictures, lack of in-camera correction is seriously affecting the photo quality. One example is 8th picture where there is those brances on the upper left.

When raw file is opened in Olympus Workspace, almost no CA is visible.

I made no other adjustments in Olympus Workspace than crop and this is the result: https://i.imgur.com/abgxaO7.jpg
I guess there's no need to say which one is uncorrected and which one has automatic correction.

In reply to:

phouphou: seems like a great choice for 40mm lovers on a tighter budget. Seems resonably sharp wide open f2 and exceptionally sharp stopped down to f8.
Makes the $800 for the OMSystem 1.4/20mm even harder to swollow since once stopped down to f2.8 this $299 Z lens will very likely outperform it in most regards.

You are comparing apples and not even oranges but a potato.

OM M.Zuiko is weather sealed lens with 11 elements with multiple ED/HR elements. High quality glass doesn't come cheap no matter the format.

This Nikon has 6 elements which 2 are aspherical, has plastic construction and no weather sealing whatsoever.

No doubt Nikon has great value but comparing this to OM 20mm is pointless.

And in next episode, dpreview will open a can of worms called lens aperture equivalence.

All of these MFT lenses, no matter if they are Olympus, OM System or Panasonic(Leica) seems to attract unhealthy amount of users from another formats repeating the mantra about light gathering and dof yadda yadda.

Most of the MFT users know very well the some limitations this system has.

I'm looking forward to this lens. Pana 20mm f/1.7 was decent lens but it's way too outdated for these modern bodies with hybrid AF. Here in Europe OM is 699 eur and knowing Olympus/OM, this will be quality glass.

peevee1: 20/5.6? For $650? Really? All mirrorless systems (except FE which does not have anything) have 20 or so mm, much faster and with autofocus. Pana 20/1.7, Fuji 18/2 and 23/1.4, Samsung 20/2.8, even Canon has 22/2, and Sigma has 19/2.8 for everybody.
So the market for this is... drumrolls... Sony A7s. A moronic lens for underdeveloped camera.

You forget that it covers full frame image circle. So fov is not equivalent on your examples. MFT should be 10mm, Aps-C should be 13mm focal length.

I'm calling bullsh1t on the OIS ad.

That's pretty much impossible on a hand held phone. Heck even the OM-D can't manage that.


Well this says all about it. But I still think that OIS in a _smartphone_ is something revolutionary.
