Dear all, first of all, an introduction to the forum I have been following for some time (with great pleasure and usefulness). I am the relatively new owner of a m4/3 kit (E-M1), after a stint with a E-M5 last year which I didn't like too much. Despite owning a full fledged pro FF kit, I am finding that the E-M1 is possibly the most ergonomic camera I've ever used... and that is no small feat! For the moment, I love the camera, and find the image quality acceptable up to iso 1600, which was unexpected. Lenses are impressive, and single focus is surprising: I dare say, even faster and more precise than my D4. Incredible little camera. So, thank you again for this forum, that has offered in time plenty of information, and that has been of help in chasing down and evaluating the E-M1 before purchase (and the purchase, yesterday, and after much agonizing, of a 35-100 ). Now my question: I love wide/ultra wide (not for panoramas though), but can't quite find a suitable lens in the m4/3 camp. On Nikon I use the 17-35 2.8. Yesterday I tried the 7-14, and while loved the weight, build and autofocus... was bitten immediately (already in the first 2 shots) by the dreaded purple ghosting. As much as I want an ultrawide, I couldn't force myself to purchase a lens with such an issue for that amount of money... So the question is: is there anything of good quality below 12mm? I have not had the chance to try the m9-18 (although being so slow would make it really an emergency solution...). My dream, while waiting for the 7-14 from Oly, would be a 8, 9 or 10 2.8... does something like that exist at all? Or, how do you savvy forumers placate your ultra wide appetites with Olympus bodies? Thanks all again for the past information, and my bests, Lory p.s. I even thought of purchasing a 4/3s 7-14 with an mmf-3... but that would fully negate the benefits of the small form factor despite the apparently splendid image quality(same reason why I went with the 35-100 instead of "waiting" for the 40-150 2.8... the latter errs on the "too big" side for what I consider a portable system).
