    I have one, but just haven't had the opportunity to use it with the E-M1. Hope to put it to good use in a week or so time.

    Any more shots with this great lens? I just ordered one, and was hoping to view some more samples for inspiration.

    I hope you'll post a lot here, I guess that could sway me over to get one myself. :)

    Will do. I don't shoot much landscape or interior stuff since I always want a wider angle. I'm hoping this will motivate me to diversify my portfolio a bit. It's nice to buy the SHG lenses I lusted over so badly when I shot 4/3, for half the price or less. They were made at the perfect time, specially for digital, with telecentric designs, and before bodies had enough power to do correction processing, so the optical formula had to be as close to perfect as possible. If they would only update the old SHG designs with their modern focus motors, it would be the most insane lineup ever.

    I just saw one sold for $610...I nearly bought it back as I really miss the rectilinear UWA. I so can't wait for the O 2.8 m4/3 version. The interesting thing about the 4/3 7-14 f/4 version was that you could shoot it at f2.8 if you disconnect the electronic contacts during the shot with the lens release button. I'm hoping the results will be better at 2.8 with the new lens.

    I took my new to me 7-14 along with me yesterday while I searched for wildlife. I shot a couple abandoned farms, an old barn, and a cool tree. These are all hand held. This FOV is going to take some learning and experimenting before I wrap my head around thinking in it's perspective, to find the best shots. Here's what I got, anyways:

    I'll be taking the lens into the city soon to give it a more geometrical work out. :D

    I know the new one is out, but I'm still loving my 4/3 version.

    I picked one of these up on ebay. I never thought I'd own one. Not sure if UWA is my thing, but the price was too good to not give it a try...Definitely takes some skill to get shots right. Keeper rate is low for me so far. It's bigger than I thought too.

    Anyone own this lens and the 2.8 Pro version? Wondering how you think they compare in IQ and how useful the extra stop is.

    I don't have the new one, but I suspect the ZD has better corner sharpness, especially with software distortions corrections applied to the new one.
    The main attraction for me is that the new one is much smaller and lighter.
