    Cons: Extreme buold quality, low flaring, almost no distortion above 18mm, f/2.8 is amazing in possibilities

    Pros: weight, size, no filter can be fit (almost not for protection), price

    Summary: Perfect quality always! some distortion on small focal length in edges and corners but still much less than on others.

    Cons: Expensive (compared with third party rivals), huge, hard to use filters and very prone to flares.

    Pros: Decent optics, very handy focal range and excellent build quality.

    Summary: Once a groundbreaking ultrawide, this workhorse is now a little old and faces serious rivalries from third party makers such as Tamron 15-30. Still the optic quality is fully comparable even against the newest competitors and the build quality is nothing but exceptional. Huge, bulb-like lens is a pain to use and carry around, but it has helped me make tons of my favorite pictures and finish important tasks.

    Cons: Strong focus shift: if you focus at 2,8 but shoot at 4 or 5,6 the image will be blurred and unsharp. You need to compensate this, which can be a pain.

    Pros: Very sharp, if you can handle the focus shift.

    Summary: Great lens for great pictures: highly recommendable !

    Cons: on my new D800 this lens sucks awful. On my D300s was ok but on FX have found the edges to be seriously unsharp. It also won't focus sharply at f2.8. Compared to my friends 14-24 his is absolutely pin sharp so well unhappy.

    Pros: should be a great lens but is not

    Summary: a lemon and what a lens to get a lemon with:(

    Cons: One walks more carefully when carrying this monster ready to shoot. That is with the hood off, exposing the front glass.

    Pros: Optical performance absolute unsurpassed.

    Summary: Buy this for every DX and FX camera. Used to have a Sigma 8-16 for DX. At a 3rd of the cost, 1/4 of the performance.

    Cons: I use it on Canon EOS 5D mkII. The main cons is the lack of autofocus and automatism on the diafragm due the adaptor, but this is my choice. Lens design does not permit the use of filters

    Pros: Amazing resolution, much better than any prime from Leica or Zeiss, and of course Canon or Nikon.

    Summary: dreaming of Canon may design something like this, meanwhile, the best value for your money

    Cons: Exposed large front element.

    Pros: Outstanding optical quality at all focal lengths, very minimal distortion, excellent build quality.

    Summary: If your thing is landscape photography don't let the filter issue deter you from buying this lens. You will appreciate the freedom that the quality of images taken with this lens even right into the corners wide open produces. This to me outways being able to fit a filter on as there are easy options around this issue.

    Cons: On FX : none.

    Pros: Sharp over the whole picture, even wide open. Vignetting is moderate and distortion, esp. around 14mm, easily corrected (using DxO for instance). Not very sensitive to flare. Good handling, despite it being bulky.

    Summary: Simply stunning. High price, but value is just as high.

    Cons: Inacceptable vignetting at maximum aperture.

    Pros: No comparable angle of view on a Nikon or Canon...

    Summary: No Comparisson to the Zuiko 7-14mm.

    Cons: cannot take filters

    Pros: truly amazing quality for an ultra wide angle zoom

    Summary: no other lens matches its performance and the price is actually pretty good when you consider that the Canon 14mm prime alone costs more

    Pros: It is a crime to stop this lens down. It is designed to shoot @2.8!

    Summary: I would put the size and weight into "cons" section but I know you can not trick physics. And... I like its macho look :-)

    Cons: Heavy & Bulky (for me anyway) Can't use filters

    Pros: Super sharp at all focal lengths and apertures, with superb build quality. Creates stunning wide angle shots on full frame cameras with rich colours. Resists flare quite well.

    Summary: The best wide angle zoom full stop. No need for primes in this range so long as weight is not a problem. And I seem to be able to get away with not using filters so far..
