    I just put my new E-P3 and Panasonic 7-14mm f/4 lens through the paces this weekend, and they performed ADMIRABLY! What a combo! Teeny tiny compared to my former D700 + 14-24mm f/2.8, and with similar performance (for all practical purposes)!

    Here are some pretty cool quick snaps that I took with the combo. This was an exhibit at the National Building Museum in Washington DC...

    The World Trade Center model was about 13 feet tall!

    This one is almost 17 feet tall!

    These were about 12 feet tall... I still can't believe they are made with 100% standard Lego pieces!

    Some people in this shot, for perspective:

    Nothing too fancy in these photos, and certainly no magazine covers from these, but they're shots I wouldn't have taken with my former SLR gear because I wouldn't have hauled the heavy gear out of the house for an outting like this!

    So far, I'm loving the 7-14mm f/4, and I encourage others to try it on for size to see if uuber-wide photography is where your photo-mojo lives...

    I've been dreaming of this lens for months. I love the shot with the people.

    Glad you guys liked the snaps! I'm going to give this lens (and the 20mm f/1.7) a workout this weekend in NYC.
