    I thought I'd share a few of these from a couple of recent visits to the Dorset coast, all taken with the 7-14mm on the EP3.

    Very nice... coastlines seem a natural fit for the 7-14mm :2thumbs:

    Thanks Jay, it's definitely an environment where the 7-14mm is very useful :smile:

    I love the way your stuff was done, but I was on the Pacific Coast of California yesterday and found the 7-14 to be just too wide for me most of the time. I did do a couple shots with it I liked, but it's definitely going to be a learning process with that lens.

    Thanks Michael, stick with it, the 7-14mm is lens that takes a bit of getting used to. I find the level gauge on the EP3 invaluable when using it, saves a lot of cropping and correcting.

    Michael, one secret to ultrawide photography is to make sure you get foreground subjects in the frame, so you get a real sense of depth. The shots use that technique with great results.

    Nice.

    The 7-14 is a dream lens for me... I would not want to make images without it. :smile:

    Here's one I did last weekend with that in mind:

    plantcovesky-XL.

    The 7-14 was really close to those foreground leaves.

    Those are fabulous. You certainly have learned how to get the best compositions that incorporate the close-up and distant. Great crops.

    Have I missed something? I haven't seen images with it recently! Where are you and how many miles have you put on your magnificent chariot?

    Hey Chrome... I'm back home now for a few months, before beginning the adventure again.

    Not likely to be posting a lot of images for a while, though there will be a Hawaii trip for a couple of weeks in September. I'm sure some images will be made there with the 7-14.

    Haven't lost my love for the 7-14, just not shooting as much for the time being. :smile:

    Hi there, great shots btw .

    Where they made at 7mm ? or at the longer end of the lens ? Im guessing the 7mm end gives a 'fish eye effect' ?

    Im considering which ultrawide to get the Oly 12 f1.8 / Oly 9-18 f3.5-5.6 / Panny 7-14 f4 ?

    I would only be able to afford 1 lens and would shot landscape and street photography, of all sorts of lighting conditions :)

    Thanks

    If you mean with all the curved lines, no, the 7mm end of the 7-14 does not do that at all. It's not a fisheye.

    If you are only going to have one lens from that group of three, I would recommend the Oly 9-18 because of the 18mm end's extra reach. I think any of these are too wide for a single lens solution though. I like my 14-45 as the general purpose lens, it's WAY more appropriate for me in most situations than either my 7-14 or 45-200.

    Zerodi.. I see that you have the 12-50 already, so I would recommend getting the 7-14 so you can achieve the most dramatic UWA looks with the highest quality. The 9-18 is a nice lens for sure, but if you have your 12-50 along, the 7-14 will compliment that to greatest effect.

    Both the 9-18 and the 7-14 are rectilinear lenses and as such do not render the round fisheye effect.

    The extra 2mm field of view when going from 9mm to 7mm is a significant increase.

    I have the three lenses you are considering. The 12/2 would be best for street due to small size and wide aperture. But 12mm gives a wide FOV, not ultra wide.

    When shooting my 7-14, I am almost always at 7mm. Here are some examples

    Really superb photos. Love the work. Hope I can get a 7-14 if available for my new omd and get some images that look so good ! Got one here in Prague with my 12-50.
