    Cons: None

    Pros: Super sharp, virtually no distortion, great color and contrast rendition. Focal range makes it an easy walk about lens covering a wide range (22 mm to 44 mm equivalent). Focuses very close. Takes ND filters for long exposures and night shots. Much sharper than 9-18 and less distortion than 12-60. Worth a few dolars more than 9-18.

    Summary: The sharpest Olympus High Grade lens made - excpet for the 50 mm f/2 macro lens. Accepts filters. Great focal range. The wide end is very wide. Perfect for interior and exterior architecture without distortion. I've used this underwater in a housing with excellent results. It's better than the 7-14 mm f/4 SHG for underwater photography. The f/2.8-3.5 HG speed is excellent for low light scenics and street photography.

    Cons: Manual focus only for me with my Panasonic Lumix G1 micro four-thirds camera. Not a problem for Olympus owners though.

    Pros: Extremely sharp focus and outstanding colour, especially with blue tones. I feel I got a very good deal on a high quality product. It's so superior to my (more versatile) kit lens that I'm reluctant to take it off.

    Summary: You will never regret buying it and your main decision will be whether you're prepared to sacrifice image quality for even greater width, with the inferior 9-18mm or 10-20mm alternatives available.

    Price: 450€
    User profile: Semipro

    Cons: a little to much cromatic aberration at the long end (11mm) price for a new one (800)

    Pros: super/tack sharp, wider than 11mm, that meen its a 10mm in reality, very good construction-quality, very little distorsion and vignetting, my price (450 and nearly new!), fits beautiful on my E-3

    Summary: one of the very best superwideangels, buy it!

    Cons: Not as versatile as 12-60mm.

    Pros: Very sharp. Near to no distortion. Fast aperture. Considerably wider than 14mm.

    Summary: This is probably my sharpest lens (vs 14-54 & 50-200), impressive considering this being a wide-angle lens! Hard choice now with 12-60mm and 9-18mm lenses also available. I would buy it again if in the same position again.
