Olympus Zuiko Digital 7-14mm f/4 Reviews

Biofos reviews the Olympus Zuiko Digital 7-14mm f/4 and writes;
“The ZD 7-14mm is a fabulous piece of optical engineering and even in my amateur hands shows huge potential; more than I’m ever likely to exploit. In a nutshell its advantages are resolution, sharpness, rendition, ultra-wide zoom, speed and high quality construction.”

Ephotozine reviews the Olympus Zuiko Digital 7-14mm f/4 and writes;
” Resolution is consistent across the full width of the frame, except when the optic is used wide open, where a few differences creep in towards the edge of the frame. That resolution is good enough for all the present 4/3rds cameras and still has a fair amount in reserve. Contrast, by no means bad, lacks slightly when the camera is shooting RAW files but the camera, in this case an E-500, compensates well when shooting Jpegs.”

Cameralabs reviews the Olympus Zuiko Digital 7-14mm f/4 and writes;
“As our results pages show, the 7-14mm exhibits virtually no geometric distortion, impressively low vignetting considering its extreme coverage, and is sharp in the corners throughout its focal range. It’s also very well-built and designed to stand-up to professional use. There’s admittedly some coloured fringing in the extreme corners at wide angle, but otherwise no other technical aspect we can fault it on. “

Popphoto reviews the Olympus Zuiko Digital 7-14mm f/4 and writes;
“Four Thirds system (Olympus and Panasonic) shooters who want to scoop up broad stretches of distant backgrounds, or squeeze tight interiors into a frame, or get within inches of a foreground subject while still filling the frame with plenty of sharp, undistorted background detail, will be well served by this lens.”
