    Cons: No provision for external filter. This would be to protect that really expensive highly curved piece of glass at the front or to use ND filters. PL filters don't work on lenses this wide. Not so good near its long end, better to switch to 14mm pancake or 14-45mm kit lens.

    Pros: Fabulous range of 14-28mm (35mm equiv.). Sharp, fast and fixed f4 aperture. Unbelievably light and small. Most desirable of all the micro 4/3 ultra wide lenses.

    Summary: I have to put this up against my Canon 10-20mm for APS-C size sensors. No contest, with this sort of glass the M 4/3 really comes into its own. Now what we need is longer prime lenses or quality zooms and they are coming through.
