Look good to me too - look forward to seeing some reviews. Just wish they had made it a teensy bit wider. Love the smallness of it though - great match for a GF1 surely.

Think I'll be getting it as I'm hoping to catch the Aurora Borealis in Feb. Not really much other choice on :43:. I have the Panny 7-14, but I thinks that extra stop and a third will come in handy.

Corners are quite soft, otherwise looks good. Will be getting it nevertheless on day 1 - hope it gets released before my trip in early November!

Harri,
Before you make a decision, it would be wise to seek more samples from another location.
Just so you get more info.
Please post your findings here as we all await your findings.
Thanks...don

I agree fully, but those are the only full-size samples I've been able to find. I'm going on a trip in early November and I need a wide angle, UWA preferred, before it, and time is running out :(

The Oly 9-18 is getting tempting - down to $570 US. If it gets to $500 it will be hard not to pull the trigger.

Maybe you should rethink your lenses for the early Nov vacation.
A lens on the camera is worth 2 in the store.
I dont think the 14 will make early Nov but I wish it would.

How much is the price (USD) going to be on this again?
This was the range I wanted initially, when I bought the GF1, so I'm definitely planning on eventually getting it if the quality is good.

$500 seems like a bargain, compared to UK prices. It's more or less relpace the $ with a £, but it seems that's always the case which is why I tend to import a lot of stuff and pay the duty and VAT.

Was going to import the 9-18, but consider myself lucky to have got offered the 7-14 through a friend of a friend for £500, it's a great lens and that was a great price.

I'll still be getting the 14mm pancake though as that extra stop and a bit over the 7-14 might just mean getting a keeper on my Iceland trip, don't think I'll be going back again for a while.

This looks tempting after I get the $ but I think I'll go with the tokina 11-16 since I mainly do video. However if the AF is considerably better than the 20mm then I will buy it for a single project which I need AF for.

New 14/2.5

Hey folks,
I'm new to this forum. 'Thought my first picture post here might be this image I took the other day with my new 14/2.5. 'Looks to me to be a very useable lens so far.
