    Cons: Heavy and expensive.But you get what you pay for in this case.

    Pros: Extremely sharp and contrasty at all apertures, At 7 mm, the very definition of a wide angle.

    Summary: Great fun to use. Wouldn't be without it (or the Zuiko 12-60 and 50-200).

    Cons: Flare, distortion in corners at 7mm

    Pros: Incredible coverage, minimal barrel distortion for such a wide coverage, use outside in rainy weather frequently

    Summary: As a real estate photographer this lens gives me an advantage over my competitors

    Cons: f:2.8 can only be done by a trick, but normally you will not need f:2.8

    Pros: sharpness, colour rendition, contrast. minimum distortions (less than the nikkor 14-24), image stabilized on most of olympus-bodies, the weather sealing has let my lens survived a short dive in a wild river.

    Summary: i do not regret a bit to have paid the price. it is worth every penny.

    Cons: Big chunk of glass; backbreaker lugging it around all day

    Pros: Excellent optics, solid construction, weatherproofed

    Summary: A very nice lens, but a luxury at its price.

    Cons: 9-18mm is closeto the 7-14mm in quality and much smaller and cheaper. Lens flare when shooting toward the sun. The 7-14mm has a big chunk of glass sticking out of the front - you need to be very careful about bumping into things.

    Pros: Optical and build quality are great.

    Summary: I am very happy with it.
