Olympus 7-14mm f/2.8 PRO Lens is Sweet


One of the benefits of workshops is learning about other photographer's gear. This last weekend I spent some quality time with the Olympus 7-14mm f/2.8 PRO Lens mounted on my OM-D E-M5 Mark II. After a few shots, I was reluctant to unmount this beautiful zoom. Here are the basic specs:

  • 14-28mm (35mm Equivalent)
  • Aperture Range: f/2.8 to f/22
  • 3 Aspherical, 1 DSA, 4 ED, 2 HR Elements
  • Anti-Reflection ZERO Coating
  • High-Speed Imager AF with MSC
  • Manual Focus Mechanism (Snap)
  • L-Fn Button for Settings Control
  • Dust, Splash, and Freezeproof Design
  • Rounded 7-Blade Diaphragm

In terms of handling, the 7-14mm PRO is smooth, quiet, and fast. It has a nice heft that balanced wonderfully on the E-M5 II. And the images were terrific.

The one missing gap I have in my transition to serious Micro Four Thirds photography is pro level super wide zoom. Looks like I better start saving...
